Country Rock Music

It's rare that a genre's origins can be traced to an individual or two, but Country Rock arrived when Gram Parsons recorded Safe At Home with the International Submarine Band, then Sweetheart of the Rodeo with The Byrds. Neil Young's output significantly influenced the genre as well, and through the '70s Southern Rock bands fused country themes and twang.
