Showcasing the Carter Family with a special appearance by third generation member Lorrie Carter Bennett, P&P highlights other legendary musicians who forged careers in the new music form, including Jimmie Rodgers, Leslie Riddle, DeFord Bailey, Hank Williams, and Kitty Wells. Discover why legends Johnny Cash, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Brad Paisley have continued to celebrate these icons of country. Roots music: rediscovered for a new generation.
