Country Music Weekly Replay

Explore the history of a uniquely American art form: country music.

  • Fred Vigeant

From its deep and tangled roots in ballads, blues and hymns performed in small settings, to its worldwide popularity, learn how country music evolved over the course of the twentieth century.

Country Music, directed by Ken Burns, features never-before-seen footage and photographs, plus interviews with more than 80 country music artists. No one has told the story this way before.

Be sure to watch WITF’s Original Production where we take a look at the impact of Country Music in Pennsylvania January 2 at 9:00 PM. The one-hour special is also available for on-demand viewing through our website.

The eight part Country Music series premiered this past September.  It will rebroadcast weekly on Fridays at 9:00 PM beginning January 3 on WITF.  The entire series is available to WITF Passport members for on-demand viewing through our website and the PBS Video App.
