  • Great documentary!

    I’ve never been a fan of country music, but maybe that will change now. For me, this has been a most interesting documentary series. One of the best I’ve seen. It’s like a story of America through music, with classic images and sounds. Have learned a lot of information where previously I knew nothing. For example, it details the important role of minorities, most notably African-Americans, in the development of the genre. If you do know country music, there’s probably plenty for you here too. It shows where the great artists came from, how they got their start, and why their music has touched so many Americans.

    This is a show you. Can watch over and over again. Going in I thought this might be Burns best work since the Civil War. I was wrong. It’s better.

    I have been a Ken Burns fan since he first did the Civil War. I have seen everyone of his documentaries multiple times and I own most of them. I am also a huge fan of “American Experience.” Up until “Country Music” I didn’t think he could ever top “Jazz,” but “Country Music,” in my opinion, is his finest work to date. I really enjoyed Marty Stuart’s commentaries. I have seen him in concerts several times and enjoy his music, but I was amazed by the depth of his knowledge about the history and evolution of country music. If you ever get to Nashville you should take a tour of Roy Acuff’s home next to the new Grand Ole Opry. They show several short movies and Marty Stuart is featured prominently in one of them. I couldn’t wait for my local PBS station to play the episodes one by one so I bought it on Apple TV so I could binge it all at once. This documentary is fantastic. I highly recommend it.
