    Ken Burns' "Country Music" series on PBS

    Outstanding stuff, methinks. Especially liked episodes One and Three. One, the beginnings of recorded country, hooked me with info on the Carter family and Jimmie Rodgers. Three, with a deep dive into Hank Williams, kept me glued for the whole episode.

    Episode Seven resonated especially because of its focus on the "outlaw" movement led by Waylon, Willie, etc.

    Thanks to the DVR i get to go back through and soak in a bit more info.

    Anyone else hooked?

    I watched the last two episodes only (#7 & #8) and they were fantastic!

    Agree on the outlaw movement.

    Lot of good stories I never knew about.

    Outstanding documentary. Everything Ken Burns touches is excellent. He examined the very best of Country music. I came in midway through episode 1. Episodes 7 and 8 didn’t record because of inclimate weather so I’ll have to catch them next time around.

    Patsy Cline had one of the most angelic voices ever.

    My mother was from Nashville so as a kid we spent a lot of time there. One of the most interesting things to me was the pictures of old Nashville. The L&C building used to dominate the skyline. Now you have to look for it. I’ll always think Nashville is the best city in the South. It has changed dramatically in my lifetime.

    Have not seen it yet but if it is as good as his Civil War/Baseball and Vietnam War programs, then I will make time to watch it.

    While I am not a fan of country music, I did watch an episode, and as Go Bama said, anything by Ken Burns is excellent.
