Item description for White Soul: Country Music, the Church and Working Americans by Tex Sample...

White Soul is an examination of the social, political, and religious foundations that bring rural and urban working-class white people and country music together as a dominant force in 20th century American music. An elitism of the upper class is named, examined, and debunked--with particular focus on the cultural values of working-class people and the "trashy" church that is preferred.

Publishers Description

White Soul examines the social, political, and religious foundations of country music as the soul music of white, working-class Americans.

Country music gives voice to an economically battered subculture of hard-living and hard-working people who find self-expression in the music of honky-tonks and heartaches. It celebrates the "wild side of life" as a form of populist anarchism and escapist festivity. This unusual medley of sociology, theology, and country music history is also a compelling critique of the elitism of "good taste" in the dominant culture.

Tex Sample challenges the church to reach out to working-class people, who have often been ignored and demeaned by churches held captive to the tastes and lifestyles of the upper middle class.
