    Yeah, that’s why I said they have been modernized and life is easier, but many still have that same attitude and mentality.

    Nah , many went to college ( West Virginia ) ( Vanderbuilt ) (Kentucky )(Middle TENN State) ... and many others got decent jobs in fields that required JC level training . Still others were in Military and even Law enforcement which was modernized several times over and had rank & file keeping up . The Southerners & Hill billies you seem to think are pervasive there are pretty much a minority in their own environs . You are thinking a 1979 commonality is not a near unicorn today . There have not been Kluxers or even closet Kluxers ( with 3 barefoot dirty young snotty nosed children out playing on the dirt switchback for decades .

    I always thought that the life and times of the Carter Family would make for a great mini-series.

    Just have to take out the sex, the gay sex, the constant cursing, and violence that seems required for "television entertainment," these days.

    I have never been a huge fan of Country Music, but, I am a MASSIVE fan of Country Music Entertainers.

    Trust me, the vast majority of them are sincere and "real" in how they present themselves......

    Wonder if it gets to Johnny Paycheck and the wonderful Hee Haw Mid 70s and even 80s with obscure success from the likes of Junior Brown

    I really enjoyed the 3rd part.
    Willie Nelson, as a young kid, did the work to set up a country show in his home town? Wow.
    AP Carter died young after a life of heaving drinking that moved to drugs. Why does genius end up in this result in so many cases?

    I took the time to compare lyrics of those old, great tunes to those of today and it's truly sad. Fifth grade drop outs creating poetry equivalent to anything ever produced by the so-call Classics.

    Carter Family Wildwood Flower (written by AP)

    Oh, I'll twine with my mingles and waving black hair
    With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
    And the myrtle so bright with the emerald hue
    The pale amanita and eyes look like blue

    Oh I'll dance, I will sing and my laugh shall be gay
    I will charm every heart, in his crown I will sway
    When I woke from my dreaming, my idol was clay
    All portion of love had all flown away
    Oh he taught me to love him and promised to love
    And to cherish me over all others above
    How my heart is now wond'ring no mis'ry can tell
    He's left me no warning, no words of farewell
    Oh, he taught me to love him and called me his flow'r
    That was blooming to cheer him through life's dreary hour
    Oh, I long to see him and regret the dark hour
    He's gone and neglected this pale wildwood flow'r

    How's that?

    Wabash Cannonball (I loved the verion of this by the black harmonia player who was on the Grand Ole Opry for so many years)


    From the great Atlantic Ocean to the wide Pacific shore
    From the green ol' Smoky Mountains to the south lands by the shore
    She's mighty tall and handsome and she's known quite well by all
    She's the regular combination of the Wabash Cannonball
    Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
    As she glides along the woodland through the hills and by the shore
    Hear the mighty rush of the engine, hear the lonesome hobos call
    You're traveling through the jungles on the Wabash Cannonball
    Our eastern states are dandy, so the people always say
    From New York to St Louis with Chicago by the way
    From the hills of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall
    No changes can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball
    Now here's to Daddy Claxton, may his name forever stand
    And always be remembered through the courts throughout the land
    His earthly race is over, now the curtains round him fal

    Wow, this is real country! (it lacks the prerequisite of steel guitar, I think)

    Song was written by Mel Tillis and somebody else. My aunt beat Mel Tillis in a talent contest in his hometown.
    Which was..lemme see here..it's around the lake..Indian name..Oh! I can't remember. Dammit! I can't remember it to save my soul!

    I'm glad they covered Ralph Stanley a little; he covers songs that date back to the mid-19th century. " Oh Death" is one of the more haunting songs I've ever heard. That wasn't on the series, but should have been. I lot of it comes from the early Irish immigrants of the 1700's, and old English as well; they don't get enough credit as the main originators of much of American music, including gospel, jazz, and blues. They were a big influence in New Orleans, most of the skeletons buried in the levees all along the rivers there are Irish laborers just buried over where they fell dead on the job.

    Not to my surprise, when I tried to find Session 5, turns out one has to "become a member" in order to see it. Pay per View on PBS.
