* ''Blue Yodel No. 9'' (1930) by Jimmie Rodgers (singer), Louis Armstrong (trumpet), and Lil Hardin Armstrong (piano). Also known as ''Standing on the Corner''. While considered a major star of CountryMusic, Rodgers incorporated elements of {{Jazz}} and {{Blues}} in his work. The collaboration in this work is considered groundbreaking in several ways. One of the earliest known collaborations between "white" and "black" artists, an early fusion of elements, and successful with audiences of varying racial backgrounds. It has been regarded as one of the songs which "shaped rock".

* Music/JohnnyCash. Yes, you read that right. Even though Cash is considered a Country Legend, he was also a pioneer of Rock and Roll. He earned his place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was only in his later life he settled into country music full-time, but even then some of his last works before his death are rock and roll songs.

Although recordings in the [[RAndB Rhythm and Blues]], [[CountryMusic Country & Western]], Dixieland {{Jazz}}, straight Jazz and BigBand genres had incorporated elements of Rock 'n' Roll as far back as the 1920s, the actual form wasn't codified until the early 1950s when white musicians began performing Rhythm and Blues songs in a Country & Western style. An early predecessor to Rock 'n' Roll is {{Rockabilly}}.

* ''Maybellene'' (1955) by Chuck Berry. A song concerning fast cars and speed, it became the first hit by Berry and one of the first major hits of the genre, not to mention an early example (along with "Rocket 88") of the marriage between rock and roll and fast cars, as well as an example of the "rhythm and blues/country western" definition of rock and roll from the black musician's perspective. (See also Berry's
"Thirty Days" from around the same time.)
