ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY Image

BBC Four HD – Country Music by Ken Burns

The history of the art form and how it evolved between 1964 and 1968. During a time of cultural upheaval, country music reflected a changing America, as Loretta Lynn addresseed women’s concerns, Merle Haggard championed the common man, and audiences looked beyond skin colour to embrace Charley Pride. Meanwhile, Johnny Cash descended into the chaos of drug addiction, though The Man in Black found salvation through the intervention of June Carter and a landmark album that critics still applaud. Narrated by Peter Coyote.
