Due to technical issues, Trax is undergoing an unexpected upgrade. Thank you for your patience as we migrate content to our new site. In the meantime, the database remains operational!

Founded at Georgia College in 2015, Trax on the Trail is a website where scholars, educators, journalists, students, and the general public can learn about American presidential campaign music and gain insight into how sound participates in forming candidate identity.

Our interdisciplinary team includes academic experts from the fields of political science, musicology, sociology, history, communications, and ethnomusicology, as well as industry professionals and students.
