“Country Music” Episode 4: I Cant Stop Loving You 1953 To 1963
pbs.org ^ | September 22, 2019 | Ken Burns

“Travel to Memphis, where Sun Studios artists Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley usher in the era of rockabilly. Ray Charles crosses America’s racial divide by recording a country album. Patsy Cline shows off Music City’s smooth new Nashville Sound.”

As the 1960’s began Country & Western music was being heavily influenced by the rock & roll sound. A new generation of artists, songwriters and shrewd producers would record some great American music during this transitional era.

The documentary series “Country Music” has been airing on tv stations, and this week I streamed Episode 4 at the pbs.org website and did enjoy it, even though I’m not a big C&W fan. If any FReepers saw this specific episode and liked it, please share your positive observations and any memories of listening to these songs on the radio from 1953 to 1963.

Some Highlights Of Episode 4:
Johnny Cash
Elvis Presley
Rockabilly & Little Brenda Lee
Mel Tillis
Marty Robbins ‘El Paso’
The Nashville Sound
1959 Grammy Award to The Kingston Trio for ‘Tom Dooley’ (Best C&W Song)
Willie Nelson “Crazy”
Patsy Cline (“You Didn’t Mess With Patsy”)

I guess it started Sunday.

That’s why there’ve been four episodes shown.

Yes
Tonight in many of the major tv markets pbs stations will re-air all 4 of the previous episodes of Country Music and then show Episode 5: The Sons & Daughters Of America 1964-1968.

“I am waiting to see what other FReepers think about the series before I waste any time downloading it.”

this is a truly remarkable history of truly American music. It’s compelling, informative, and very powerfully emotionally. One of the best things i’ve seen on TV in a very long time ...

The problem is that Ken Burns has a history of putting out a masterful product then ruining it with political commentary. We have to see how it works out. Glad to hear that so far it’s good.
