Launched at Georgia College in 2015, Trax on the Trail is a website and research project devoted to the study of American presidential campaign music. Our interdisciplinary team includes students and scholars from across the US and Canada. Over the past seven years, Trax on the Trail has grown into a project of international significance, standing on the vanguard of research exploring the intersection of music and politics in American culture.

Our mission:

To promote a more critical evaluation of how music and sound shape the public’s perceptions of presidential candidates
