STUART: All of his children
had come to the mother church of country music. It was almost like
a badge of honor that you had to bring your
culture with you to the table. That’s why Bob Wills
and his guys brought us western music. That’s why Hank Williams
brought the south with him from Honky Tonks. Johnny Cash brought the black
land dirt of Arkansas. Bill Monroe brought music out of
Kentucky, bluegrass music. Willie Nelson brought
his poetry from Texas. Patsy Cline brought her heart
ache from Virginia. I mean it was the
most wonderful parade of sons and daughters of America that brought their
hearts and their souls and their experiences and it gave us a great era in
country music. ♪ ♪

  1. Yahoo ! Can't wait to see this. I'm glad Marty is in this special. He's a great spokesman for it. He's lived it.

  2. It looks interesting, but Ken Burns always manages to find a way to ruin
    it by inserting his bubble-headed liberal politics into everything he
    produces, so I'm guessing that this will be no exception.

  4. I watched the trailer & i believe this will be a great story of our beloved Country Music. Yesterday's (from the 50s thru the late 80s) music will be around for eons. In 3 weeks, today's country hits won't be heard ever again…. I haven't bought a song since the early nineties…. If it weren't for my great "Old Country" Radio Station, I wouldn't be able to listen to it on the radio… I do hope Mr Burns does right by this project. If not, I'm sure America will tell him what we think…
