COUNTRY MUSIC will be a sweeping, multi-episode series, exploring the questions, “What is Country Music?” “Where did it come from?” while focusing on the biographies of the fascinating characters who created it—from the Carter family, Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills, to Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Garth Brooks and many more—as well as the times in which they lived. And like the music itself, COUNTRY MUSIC will tell unforgettable stories—stories of the hardships and joys shared by everyday people. Special Preview Screenings will be airing in the Rec Hall on Friday and Saturday with talkback sessions following some.

SMART TALK LIVE RADIO BROADCAST (WITF 89.5 FM) Join Scott LaMar special guests for a lively discussion about the new Ken Burns series COUNTRY MUSIC. Plus, uncover the history and evolution of the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival as the show broadcasts live on Friday!
