Now Entering WSVG Country on 790 AM

2016 November 2

Johnny CashJohn PrineBilly Joe Shaver
The Delta blues created by artists such as Son House and Blind Lemon Jefferson influenced many artists, from Led Zeppelin to Eric Clapton to Bob Dylan. The Rolling Stones named themselves after a Muddy Waters tune.

Around the same time, artists such as Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family made music evoking folklore and heritage of the South. Dubbed “hillbilly” music, it influenced another genre of music made by Johnny Cash, John Prine, Billy Joe Shaver and more.

Robert Johnson sang about the Crossroad Blues. Meet us at the new crossroads of these two uniquely American music influences in WSVG Country, now playing every day 790 AM and on the WSVG Radio Stream by clicking the “Listen Live” link at the top right of this page.

    Great tunes, I swear I haven’t heard John Prine on a radio station since 1975. I begging you to please play some Kris Kristofferson, any and all.
