Thoughts on Country Music, Dignity, and Genre Stereotypes


The new Ken Burns documentary, Country Music, will begin airing Sunday evening on PBS stations around the country, including AETN. Last month, during this year's edition of the Fayetteville Roots Festival, two preview screenings of the series were held at Fayetteville Public Library.

Here's a portion of that discussion.
