and Western Bands
From Cutting Edge Productions Inc.
Choose a Band for You:
to CEO Productions. We are proud of the country and
western bands that we provide for your events.
Country and Western music has its roots in the blues,
spirtuals and folk music. First becoming big in the
Southeast in the 20's, Country and Western music found
its way into the American lexicon. The Grand Ole Opry
has featured country and western bands and singers
since 1925 with its broadcast since 1925, making it
one of the longest running in the history of broadcasting.
While it generally was seen as an offshoot of more
popular forms of entertainment, the 60's saw an explosion
in country music making it a multi-million dollar
industry with its own stars, glamor and following.
Over the years, the industry has continued to evolve.
The once soulful tunes of love lost and national depression
have given way to pop offshoots and mass appeal. With
such cultural icons as John Travolta in Urban Cowboy,
Sandra Bullock in The Thing Called Love, and
even Sylvester Stallone in Rhinestone, partaking
in this world, general audiences began accepting country
and western music. The world of Patsy Cline, Gene
Awtry and Johnny Cash has given way to Willie Nelson,
the Judds, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, the Judds, LeAnne
Rimes, Shania Twain, Martina McBride and Faith Hill.
Alabama and The Oak Ridge Boys have achieved popularity
for years, and The Dixie Chicks have even become something
of a pop icon for their political leanings.
Because of the roots of Country and Western music,
the lyrics portray a more grass roots picture of Americana
that other popular art forms, with the failures and
successes of everyday living providing the fodder
for the emotional backdrop of the music. Country and
Western music makes an excellent selection for use
at festivals, sporting events, weddings, corporate
events, reunions, and more.
