A Country Music Celebration: The Bakersfield Sound
In the 1950's and 60's Bakersfield became an unlikely birthplace for a new sound – The Bakersfield Sound.

Universally recognized as ‘The Country Music Capital of the West Coast’ and ‘Nashville West’, Bakersfield is the birthplace for what would become known worldwide as the Bakersfield Sound. The sub genre of country music – described as a mix of twangy guitars, drums, fiddle, and steel guitar – was a defiant reaction to the string orchestras and the polished sound of albums being recorded in Nashville during the 1950’s and 60’s.

Many musicians and entertainers were involved in making the Bakersfield Sound a global phenomenon, and A Country Music Celebration: The Bakersfield Sound honors just some of those artists through one incredible night of music.
