M. Ted (inactive) Country & Western are they different? (50) RE: Country & Western are they different? 04 Oct 00


The term "Country and Western" was introduced as a catchall name for a new Billboard chart, in 1948, because they needed something broad and modern sounding to cover all the records that were being sold at the time, including western swing, honky tonk, boogie-woogie, early rock and roll, etc.
