About Country Music:
Country Music is an eight-part, 16-hour documentary series directed and produced by Ken Burns, that explores the history of a uniquely American art form. From its deep and tangled roots in ballads, blues and hymns performed in small settings, to its worldwide popularity, learn how country music evolved over the course of the 20th century, as it eventually emerged to become America’s music.

Country Music explores questions such as “What is country music?” and “Where did it come from?” while focusing on the biographies of the fascinating characters who created and shaped it. From the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills to Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Garth Brooks, and many more, the documentary will explore stories as well as the times in which they lived. Much like the music itself, the series tells unforgettable stories of hardships and joys shared by everyday people.

Country Music traces the music’s origins and its early years when it was referred to as hillbilly music and played across the airwaves on radio station barn dances. The series will follow how Hollywood B movies instituted the fad of singing cowboys like Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, and watch how the rise of juke joints after World War II changed the musical style by bringing electric guitars and pedal steel guitars to the forefront. It continues by following the rise of bluegrass music with Bill Monroe and how one of country music’s offspring-rockabilly-mutated in to rock and roll in Memphis. And, it will explore how Nashville slowly became not just the mecca of country music, but “Music City USA.”
