Has the electric guitar always been used in country songs? If not, when did it start getting used?

    No, not always. The Carter Family was recording in Bristol, Tennessee using an unamplified Gibson archtop back in 1927, right around when Jimmie Rodgers came along. He used a Martin steel string acoustic guitar. Electric guitars for country music came around later.
