93. Country Crossroads

Lyrics about driving your truck on a dirt road in your blue jeans and cowboy hat, with your dog by your side. Are these stereotypes of country music true? Hear how this musical genre began and evolved over two centuries influenced by immigrant groups and spread all over the world through radio and television. Glenda and Jesse Drew discuss their recently released film, Open Country, a documentary about the history and politics of country music. Then visit Nashville, home of the Grand Ole Opry—the world’s longest-running live music radio show.
