The term “Country Music” was coined in the 1940s because the earlier term “Hillbilly Music” was deemed to be degrading. Around the same time the term “Rhythm and Blues” replaced the term “Race Music” or “Sepia” for the same reason. The funny thing is… Black artists actually pioneered this genre but when record companies in the 1920s created musical “Genres” to better market the records they were releasing, African Americans had to more or less leave it alone.
