Alabama has an important place in the story of the blues, most notably with Florence native W. C. Handy, the “Father of the Blues.” Handy played a unique role in jump-starting the music scene during the “roaring 20s,” and helped to bring the blues to international audiences. The combined efforts of Handy and another Alabamian, songwriter Perry Bradford , culminated in the first blues recording, “Crazy Blues.” Sung by Mamie Smith and released in 1920, this song became an unexpected, overnight sensation, selling more than 1 million copies in one year.
