Ken Burns' Country Music ~ Tonight It Begins
I hope Ken doesn't let me down. I'm a fan of his documentaries, but let's face it ~ this is PBS, and PBS has an agenda that's not necessarily about the glory of country music.

I hope actual artists that real country fan love get a shot at inclusion. I hope Ken doesn't go all sociological, but instead focuses on the music.
I will stay tuned.
