Pioneers of Country Music

My roots are planted in Kentucky.
I love to stomp my feet on wooden floors.
Dirt is my friend.
Dancing keeps my soul at peace.

I spent the evening with 2 of my dearest friends from home as they journey this way to the Greyfox bluegrass festival in the catskills.
Feeling a bit bummed I am not going so I thought I would post some old-timey country.
These are some of the musicians who paved the way for country mountain music.
I think I could post a thousand videos so this will be an on-going thing.
