Proud to Be an Okie

Peter La Chapelle

University of California Press

Although the gender politics of local country music moved in conservative directions, especially within some segments of fan culture, new women auteurs began playing significant and often underacknowledged roles in challenging the constrictions that women faced in the 1950s and 1960s. This chapter explores the complex interplay between the progressive messages offered by these female Okie stars and the general gender conservatism of locally produced country music fan magazines.

Keywords:   country music, gender politics, female Okie stars, music fan magazines, gender conservatism
