Simply put, it's a masterpiece.

Whether you love country music, love history, love country music history or just enjoy an extremely well done documentary that tells a multitude of great stories interwoven together by a great American storyteller, I believe you will love Ken Burns "Country Music". It's sixteen hours in eight two-hour episodes that tell the compelling story of country music, from it's beginnings to 1996. It is tremendously expansive, but as Burns always does, he makes the subject easy to understand and grasp through the many story twists and turns throughout history. And along the way, even guys like me who love this music and consider themselves historians of the format, will learn a few new things along the way.

The first four episodes aired on WKAR last Sunday through Wednesday, and told the stories of the greats like Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Hank Sr., Loretta, Patsy Cline, Elvis, Cash and more.

The final four episodes will air tonight through Wednesday, and will begin tonight with Loretta, Merle, Charley Pride and many others to tell the story of country music as it continues in 1964.

Tune in to WKAR and watch Ken Burns "Country Music". I know you will be glad you did. You may also see Mid-Michigan's Favorite Morning Show, Banana Don & Stephanie McCoy at the beginning and end of each episode.
