America’s favorite cinematic historian Ken Burns presents a sneak peek at his newest series about this distinctively American art form. The team behind The Civil WarLewis and ClarkThe National Parks and The Dust Bowl now turns to new questions about the history that binds us: “What is country music?” and “Where did it come from?”

From Appalachia to Texas, from Nashville to California, this sweeping, multi-episode series is filled with fascinating characters and unforgettable musical moments from legends such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and many more. Like the music itself, Country Music tells remarkable stories—stories of the hardships and joys shared by everyday people.
