dc.description.abstractTexas and Texans have been and continue to be prominent in the overall history and development of the recording industry, although there has never been a recording center or record label in Texas comparable to those of New York, Los Angeles, or Nashville. The sales of so-called "cowboy," "hillbilly," and "ethnic" recordings in the 1920s and 1930s, much of which came out of Texas, were very important in helping bankroll the growth of the recording industry in America. At the time, the recording companies considered the audience for "popular" music to be "lower-class," but it was certainly a larger and more profitable market than that for classical and operatic music recordings, and it remains so today.en_US
