Historical Information

Arkansas music includes many genres, from country and folk to blues, jazz, and rock. In addition to the music created here and by Arkansans, Arkansas has often been the subject of songs created both in the state and outside, reflecting the perceptions of natives and of outsiders at various points in the state's history. Many important venues and events have and still take place in Arkansas, and significant contributions have also been made by Arkansans behind the scenes in music production, management, and technology.
