Digital Album: $9.99

The Americana music movement began in traditional and progressive country music, but with time, it widened its embrace to all the core roots influences, including the awe-inspiring African-American legacies of blues, soul, R&B and gospel. Here, artists black and white offer up personal takes on music that shaped our nation’s very identity. You’ll hear a gospel-infused “Blowin’ In The Wind,” the iconic “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” as interpreted on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, and some innovative younger voices recasting the tradition.

The Music City Roots Soul collection encompasses the traditions of R&B, blues and gospel – the American South’s great gift to the world.
