Country Music: Live at the Ryman airs September 8

Country Music: Live at The Ryman, a concert featuring many of the artists who appear in the upcoming Ken Burns documentary Country Music, comes to CET and ThinkTV16 on Sunday, September 8, at 8pm.

The concert, which was recorded at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, is hosted by Burns and features performances by Dierks Bentley, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Rhiannon Giddens, Vince Gill, Kathy Mattea, Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Asleep at the Wheel, Holly Williams and Dwight Yoakam. In addition to the performances, the concert includes select clips from Country Music, which premieres on September 15.

“In country music, we found a love for storytelling that translates everyday experiences into universal truths that we can all identify with,” said Ken Burns. “We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to bring film excerpts of Country Music to those areas that gave birth to this most American of art forms. Ryman Auditorium, the Mother Church of Country Music, is a character itself in our film, and hosting this concert there was a dream come true for us. We are thrilled to now share this special evening with PBS viewers across the country.”
