Unit 2 Part 2 Short Answer Assignment 1. Why did the popularity of country music decline in the 1950s? (1 point) The popularity of country music declined in the 1950’s mainly because there was a major increase of other genres. The radio started focusing more on rock and roll. The difference between then and now is they had limited radio station options as opposed to now having stations specifically dedicated to country. Country artists started to change their sound to become more rock and roll but this did not work. 2. Describe 2 ways the Nashville sound differed from prior country music? (2 points) The Nashville sound differed from prior country music because it was now about one specific artist instead of the entire band including guitars, drums, piano, etc. Another reason is it didn’t have the fiddles, twang, and honky-tonk feel to it anymore. Country music is now more pop sounding and we call this “new country”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
