All You Need Is Love Vol 10: Making Moonshine ~ Country Music

Volume 10 of the Award Winning Documentary - Country Music features Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter and more.

Country music was, originally, home-made music. It described the births, marriages and deaths that happened in every community. It celebrated love, just as it bemoaned the ill-fortune that came to every man. It was music with which all felt they could identify. As such, it occupied a unique place in white culture. The music was not manufactured, as in Tin Pan Alley, nor sophisticated, and this episode describes the process by which this change came about. Finally, we will be backstage at the Grand Ole Opry during one of its regular nationwide broadcasts, with a blessing to finish from Grand Ole Gospel Time. This episode includes performances from the likes of; Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Doug Kershaw and Minnie Pearl. There are also interviews with Ernest Tubb, Roy Rogers and Tex Ritter.
