Student researchers coordinate project to track music of 2016 presidential campaign

  • Several Georgia College students and faculty members are coordinating a project through which, for the first time, a presidential campaign will be documented by the beats and lyrics played on the trail.
  • From Bernie Sanders’s use of “Rockin’ in the Free World” to Donald Trump playing “Eye of the Tiger” at his rallies, the students track the music to add to  Trax on the Trail’s growing database.
  • Kitts and McClain are also working with faculty to co-author research papers for the site.
  • Creating quite a buzz since its launch in December 2015, the Trax on the Trail project has been featured by media outlets including the Boston Herald and Atlanta Business Chronicle, among others.
