Country rock

Country rock is a musical genre formed from the fusion of rock and roll with country music.

While such cross-pollination has occurred throughout the history of both genres, the term is usually used to refer to wave of groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s who began to record country flavored records, including The Byrds, Gram Parsons and Bob Dylan with The Band.

The term is also used for those who came after them, from The Eagles, and the many bands they influenced, such as the alt.country[?] movement.
