Poland doesn’t have as much of an established country music presence as some other European countries, but I was able to find enough for a solid list:
My starting point is the 1926 Polish cover of Vernon Dalhart’s “Prisoner’s Song” by Władysław Ochrymowicz. Let’s also take a look at some Polish dances and the musical styles that accompany them:
“The modern American polka is distant from its European roots… The distinct Polish-American version of the polka has roots in working class communities of the East Coast and the Midwest with mixed Polish, German and Czech populations.”
I have a Country Polka playlist. Polka songs impacted the country charts in the 1940s, including a couple of number one country hits, but now, that’s mostly forgotten history:
American country greats Marty Robbins, Pee Wee King, and Dave Dudley had Polish ancestry.
