WELCOME TO THE NEW SITE FOR THE STUDY OF THE BAKERSFIELD SOUND!
THE RESEARCH JOURNAL
WELCOME TO THE NEW SITE FOR THE STUDY OF THE BAKERSFIELD SOUND! The Bakersfield sound was a genre of country music developed n the mid- to late 1950s in and around Bakersfield, California. Bakersfield country was a reaction against the slickly-produced, string orchestra-laden Nashville Sound, which was becoming popular in the late 1950s. Buck Owens and the Buckaroos and Merle Haggard and the Strangers are the most successful artists of the original Bakersfield sound era. Fender Telecaster "twang" with a driving beat!
