Billboard and Variety Magazine Country Music Index

This index covers country music artists, groups, and related topics in Billboard and Variety Magazines from 1925 to 1955. Users may either search by name or keyword, date, and publication; or browse alphabetically.  A search will generate the issue and page number in which the artist, group, or topic appears.  Note: The names in the index appear exactly as they did in the publications, as a result there are some variations.  It is recommended to search by the artist’s last name or last name and first initial to retrieve all variants.  It is also possible to retrieve information by using a few letters of the name or search term.

The original card index was created by Dr. Wayne W. Daniel, and the electronic version by the Special Collections and Archives.
