In 1925, a radio station was established in Nashville, Tennessee which was warmly welcomed by the listeners when Jamie Thoompson, an 81-year-old folk singer was invited at a broadcasting programme called "Past opera, Old song". This gave birth to the genre of "Country Music", which became the working class's favorite musical style. Nashville is also widely recognized as "White House of American Country Music", and all country music singers regard it as “Heaven of Country Music".

During 2009 Zhangjiajie International Country Music Week, 24 bands (not including 6 domestic bands) from 19 countries held 31 performances on 8 different stages in 5 days. In the magical and beautiful landscape of Zhangjiajie, with country music taking the blue sky as its milieu and the green mountain as the stage, performers from all over the world come even closer enjoying along with the visitors, expressing their thoughts and emotions by music. Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China describes the festival as successful event using soft power to improve national image.
