Stillwater, Oklahoma is the birthplace of Red Dirt music, a genre of country music that derives its name from the color of the soil. In 1979, musicians began gathering at The Farm, a two-story farmhouse on 149 acres of property just outside of town, holding jam sessions in the living room, on the front porch, in the garage and around campfires.
