About the Film

"Country Music" chronicles the history of a uniquely American art form. From southern Appalachia’s songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking western swing of Texas, from California honky-tonks to Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, we follow the evolution of Country Music over the course of the twentieth century, as it eventually emerged to become “America’s music.” Directed and produced by Ken Burns and produced by Dayton Duncan and Julie Dunfey—Emmy-award winning creators of PBS’s most-acclaimed and most-watched documentaries for more than a quarter century, including "The Civil War," "Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery," "The National Parks: America’s Best Idea," "The Dust Bowl" and many more.
