Country Music: Ken Burns, Dayton Duncan and Julie Dunfey with Special Guest Vince Gill and moderator Alan Light

Sep 9, 2019

Join Ken Burns in conversation with fellow filmmakers Dayton Duncan and Julie Dunfey and country music icon Vince Gill to discuss his new film, Country Music, and the historical roots of Gill's new album, Okie. Recounting the history of country from its early roots in southern Appalachia to its status as the global phenomenon it is today, Burns, Duncan and Gill discuss the lives of its stars (Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks, among many others) and the enduring legacy of this art form on American culture with moderator Alan Light. 

Country Music premieres on September 15 on PBS stations nationwide.
