LOST HIGHWAY: THE STORY OF COUNTRY MUSIC
The Road to Nashville
BBC Specialist Factual Bristol / Bravo Channel
BBC TWO travels the Lost Highway and uncovers the story of country music on a journey to the heart of America and the music that has come to define it.
From the makers of the award-winning series Walk On By comes another major heritage music series charting the history of country music in the words of its greatest performers and producers, musicians and songwriters.
Transmission of this series coincided with the 50th anniversary of the death of Hank Williams, the most iconic figure in country and one of the most revered songwriters of all time. Hank once said, You have to plough a lot of ground and look at the backside of a mule for a lot of years to sing a country song.
This week, booze, heartbreak and disaster with the story of Hank Williams… excellent documentary series…
…a fascinating road map of the genre.
