This fusion has been traced back to before Hip Hop was even invented, as a lot of blues and country artists displayed vocal styles which were similar to rapping; in turn, various R&B and soul artists were influenced by country. One journalist traced the origins of Country Rap to Woody Guthrie. Some spoken-word songs by the Sons of the Pioneers also have rap-like elements, while Joe Tex is believed to have actually coined the term "rap" to describe his vocal style in the 1960s. Talking blues was another predecessor, as it involved half-spoken, half-sung vocal performances performed in rhyming couplets with a defined rhythm and a typically freeform and un-rhymed fifth line at the end of each bar over a minimalist but insistent rhythm.

* Some people argue that Music/CharlieDaniels' "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" was the first rap song. Think about it.
