Through the years, much has been written about the genre of music that was known as hillbilly and evolved into folk, western, cowboy and country. During that time, magazines and other publications came about as part of the popularity of the music of the times. Whether some were imitators of other successful publications at the time is for discussion but at least we have these publications to give us more of a first-hand feel of what was being said about the artists, the groups and bands and the shows of that era in American musical history. But we'd still wonder - what would be considered the first hillbilly / country music publication?
