LOCAL PROFILE: Georgia's Country Music Scene

ATLANTA – According to the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau, “country music is a perennial Southern favorite in Atlanta and it won’t disappoint”. The music, which has its roots in the south, is known as a blend of, both, traditional and popular music. The country music genre gained widespread popularity around the mid-1900’s as music known as “hillbilly” or old-time music began to decline. Hillbilly music was a genre of music native to the people of the Ozarks. The music was usually played on acoustic instrument like a guitar or a banjo.

Over the years, old-time music changed however most of the lyrical content and instrumentation stayed the same. As it evolved, the arrangement of instruments grew to include the electronic keyboard, drums, the bass, fiddle and the harmonica.

The Cultural Arts Center is on the National Historical Preservation Society’s National Register and offers enchantment and elegance for weddings and receptions. To discuss the magnificence of this 100-year-old venue, I met with Emily Lightner, program assistant of the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County

“The Cultural Center was once a home,” says Emily. She explained that it was once the home of deceased Georgia State Senator W. T. Roberts in the early 1900s.
