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 emerges to become "America's music." Directed and produced by Ken Burns, written and produced by Dayton Duncan, and produced by Jule 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.

Country Music will air Sunday, September 15 - Wednesday, September 18 & Sunday, September 22 - Wednesday, September 25 at 8:00 PM on KCTS 9.
