Homemade religions musical expression is a tradition here in Middle Tennessee.
Early settlers who came into Tennessee from the Carolinas and Virginia found very few educated clergy willing to live in the newly opened frontier lands.
Various denominations including Methodists, Baptist and Cumberland Presbyterians ordained less educated, but more rough-and-ready men to head west across the mountains and preach the gospel.
Camp Meeting gospel songs-songs with easily remembered melodies and choruses- were favored in the rural churches here.
