Ken Burns & # 39; Country Music focuses on pioneering women – Axios



"Country Music" – an epic film about a true American art form and the role of the woman in the industry, by Ken Burns – starts tonight at 8 pm ET on PBS and streaming.

What We Know: The film features 3,200 photographs and interviews with more than 100 people, including 40 members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

  • Twenty of the respondents have since been handed down.
  • Women's History with country music is featured in the series, highlighting pioneers such as Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline.
  • "Country Music", divided into 8 episodes with a total duration of 16½ hours, offers more than 2 hours of original archive footage, including never-before-shot photos and recordings by Jimmie Rodgers, Johnny Cash and others.

In an interview with "PBS NewsHour," Burns talked about the film's emphasis on women:

[W] Omen play a central role in jazz or other forms of fraternity in this story. … If you get to Loretta [Lynn] via Patsy [Cline]we are in the mid-60s. Nobody in Rock & # 39; n & # 39; Roll sings: "Do not come home with love and drink." Think about what we're talking about – spousal abuse, spousal rape, a woman's right on her own body, even in marriage, women's rights in general. Now it is the same year that the National Women's Organization was founded [1966]. … For me, all these things, race or creativity or trade or women, are all shaped by how powerful this music is. … I mean, when Hank Williams says, "I'm so lonely, I could cry." There is no one who does not know what he's talking about. "The silence of a falling star illuminates a violet sky, and when I wonder where you are, I'm so lonely that I could cry."
