Re: COUNTRY MUSIC mini series on PBS

My husband and I have been watching the mini series, I have never been a fan, but the history of it is fascinating.

Re: COUNTRY MUSIC mini series on PBS

Must watched about Hank Williams.  I always knew he had a difficult life from hearing my father tell it , but boy he really had one sad ,  painful life .   What a fantastic talent ,  and songwriter,  just thinking of all the songs that could have been written had he lived beyond .   it's easy to see how he was so loved and how some still feel he was and always will be the king of country music.

yes!  This was all happening when i was in elementary school,and wasn’t listening.  She was a baby when she was touring all ove4 the country with the grownups.  Did she go to school?  But what a voice.  Patsy was gone by the time i was in junior high.

I really liked last night's show, especially loved the Loretta Lynn show afterward.
