A person's heartbeat mimics the beat of the music he or she is listening to. In 1927, country music forebearers the Carter family and Jimmie Rodgers were first recorded there. While 1927 is pegged as the year the music was born, many historians argue that Vernon Dalhart's rendition of “The Wreck of the Old 97,” recorded in 1924, actually was the first “country” record. Jimmie Rodgers, known as the “Father of Country Music,” was an instant national success. It sold 7 million copies.
The first commercial recording of what is widely considered to be the first country song featuring vocals and lyrics was Fiddlin' John Carson with "Little Log Cabin in the Lane" for Okeh Records on June 14, 1923.
