The Oxford American's Southern Music Issue On Stands Now
December 8, 2009 1:27 p.m.
Every year, the quarterly magazine The Oxford American produces a Southern Music Issue. The editors and writers do their best to find the most interesting music from history and contemporary southern culture. This includes the forgotten acts, the talented studio musicians who never made it big, the colorful street musicians, and the one-off gems in the genres that flourish in the south: country, blues, soul, gospel, funk and rockabilly. We'll talk with the editor of The Oxford American about this year's Southern Music Issue, which includes a CD devoted to the music of Arkansas, the first in their new southern state series.
