Bakersfield, CA // Origin of Country.  In search of the Bakersfield sound, the country music born here in the '50s and '60s. "The distinct flavor came from...the 'stew' that includes Dust Bowl migrants from the 1930s and ’40s, Basque sheep men whose herds thrived on the verdant acreage, and the roughnecks who drilled the wells and made sure they kept pumping. Bakersfield’s isolation (two hours to the coast, two hours to L.A. and two days if you go anywhere east), only fermented this mix."
