This paper explores the ways in which past and contemporary country musicians have both embraced and manipulated aspects of Thomas Jefferson's agrarian vision set forth in the 1780s, in order to advance artists' political agendas and personal careers. It also explores the reasons why Jefferson's vision is still embedded in the music tradition given the early realization that it would not work in the American South due to the region's plantation and slave‐based style of farming and the area's early industrialization.
