America is one of the only countries in the world that didn't have centuries of cultural evolution to produce a unique style
of music.... or of anything. America's music is, for the most part, a mishmash of other cultures'. The first truly American
music was written during the Civil War. The War brought people together where they traded musical styles and practices. The
ballads that came from those battles are the first music from America that is really from America.
America's music is constantly changing. We're one of the trendsetters of popular music for the rest of the world.
