Besides having a stellar soundtrack, the multi-episodic documentary will also feature never-before-seen photographs and footage of iconic singers like Johnny Cash and Jimmie Rogers.

Country Music will be an 8-part, 16-hour journey that will dive deep into the genre’s fascinating history. It includes the biographies of country heavy hitters, like Hank Williams, the Carter Family, and more.

Burns’ team also boasted about sitting down with more than a hundred people to discuss country music’s origins. Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, and Willie Nelson are just some of the country legends of the many that they have spoken to, who have contributed to the film. This is, in fact, eight years in the making, so it is bound to be amazing!
