A new Ken Burns film, Country Music, will air on PBS in 2018 telling the story of country music’s evolution throughout the 20th century. The project starts with country’s roots with the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers and traces it through Johnny Cash, George Jones and Loretta Lynn‘s heyday in the ’60s and ’70s to the rise of Garth Brooks and other superstars in the 1990s.
Ken Burns has made documentaries on Jazz, Baseball and The Civil War among other topics in the last few years.
