The Nashville sound arose during the late 1950s as a sub-genre of American country music, replacing the chart dominance of honky tonk music which was most popular in the 1940s and 1950s. Although it refers to a means of production (not to mention an era and mystique) as much as to an actual sound, the Nashville Sound is generally dated from 1957 or 1958.


Country pop

By the late 1970s and 1980s, many pop music singers picked up the Countrypolitan style and created what is known as "country pop", the fusion of country music and soft rock.
