The genre evolved out of the diverse musical practices of the Appalachian region of the United States. Appalachian folk music was largely Scottish and Irish, with an important influence also being the African American country blues.
Parts of Ontario, British Columbia and the Maritime provinces shared a tradition with the Appalachian region and country music became popular quite quickly in these places.
Country Music Has A Long History In Canada
This style of country music became very popular in Canada over the next couple of decades. Later popular Canadian country stars range from Stompin’ Tom Connors to Tom Jackson to Shania Twain to Rick Tippe.
Radio and television stations in Canada which play country music, however, are often more flexible in how they define the genre than their counterparts in the United States. (Wikipedia).
