I’ve listened to Jimmie’s music most of my life, and I can easily hear his influence on the music I play today.
A little history, if I may:
Rodger’s Dad was a foreman with the Railroad which caused Jimmie to grow up around trains and train yards, where he learned to sing and play the guitar. Being taught by white and black railroad workers, he merged Country music and the Blues. And by adding his distinctive yodel to the sound, he made it his own.
By the time he was 14, he was a full-fledged brakeman and was riding trains all over the country. He incorporated his train knowledge and railroad travels to different states into the songs he wrote. For instance, in “T for Texas,” he sings about Texas, Tennessee, Georgia and Atlanta, and in many of his other songs, he sings about several other states and cities that he visited.
By adding his train travels, happy-go-lucky confidence, love travails in various cities and his sassy sense of humor to his Bluesy Country music, he endeared himself to millions of people all over the country during the hard times of the depression. He was the Elvis Presley or Beatles of his day and remains to be the greatest, single influence on American music.
But let's not forget Rodger's sister-in-law, Elsie McWilliams of Meridian, MS, who wrote the majority of Jimmie's songs. Even though Rodger's eight years of popularity was during the depth of the Depression, Jimmie's simple man's songs, being highly influenced by Elsie's lyrics of faith, family, home and sweethearts, made their songs of hard times and heartaches treasured by the American public.
Sorry for being so long winded …

Jimmie Rodgers the Father of Country music....and along with Hank Williams and Fred Rose, the first 3 inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame....cha cha cha !

@Toby Latino Yeah, a sad song with a sad yodel. :-)

Toby Latino

@Salt Rock Shakers that makes sense. I was referring to gambling bar room blues. I suppose he was referencing a train he'd hop on to escape the life he'd made for himself.

Salt Rock Shakers

@Toby Latino Being that trains were the mass transit method of Rodgers' time, I have to think an "eight wheeler" would be a freight car or a passenger train car. Both have eight wheels. If you were a hobo, you hopped on a freight train. If you had money, you rode on a passenger train. Speaking of his odd lyrics, in another song (Frankie & Johnny), Rodgers sang about a "rubber-tired hack" or hearse. In Blue Yodel #10, he sang, "Something about you mama, sho' gives me the Blues. It ain't your drop stitch stockings. It ain't your blue buckle shoes."

Toby Latino

Do you happen to know what he means when he says "eight-wheeler?"

I could listen to all of Jimmie Rodgers' Blue Yodel songs all day long. It fascinates me that they sound so sad although his voice is so high and light. Tragically he died so early.

I don’t know the name of the technique but I love the high little flourish he does on the last word, of the second line, of each stanza.

KingPetra

Some classify his Blue Yodel series as their own separate genre of country music.

Jeff Scott

In my opinion Merle Haggard s album. Same Train Different time. Was the best tribute. To Jimmie.
