This chapter discusses singing farmers and looks at the role of music in farm and rural life. Part of the discussion looks at the rise and career of a country singer, Chris Logsdon, who said that growing up on a farm influenced him toward a life of a singer-artist. The chapter also delves into the musical practices of farmers in America and reveals that when rock and roll came along, people from the cities surged out onto the farms to listen to it. No matter how the tradition of real farmers singing in professional country music has somewhat diminished, it still remains.
