    This is a show you. Can watch over and over again. Going in I thought this might be Burns best work since the Civil War. I was wrong. It’s better.

    I have been a Ken Burns fan since he first did the Civil War. I have seen everyone of his documentaries multiple times and I own most of them. I am also a huge fan of “American Experience.” Up until “Country Music” I didn’t think he could ever top “Jazz,” but “Country Music,” in my opinion, is his finest work to date. I really enjoyed Marty Stuart’s commentaries. I have seen him in concerts several times and enjoy his music, but I was amazed by the depth of his knowledge about the history and evolution of country music. If you ever get to Nashville you should take a tour of Roy Acuff’s home next to the new Grand Ole Opry. They show several short movies and Marty Stuart is featured prominently in one of them. I couldn’t wait for my local PBS station to play the episodes one by one so I bought it on Apple TV so I could binge it all at once. This documentary is fantastic. I highly recommend it.
