Broadcast: December 15, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.

The filmmakers behind "Country Music: A Film By Ken Burns" offer an inside view of how they created the documentary series and share highlights from what they discovered along the way.

For 8 years, a group of filmmakers and historians aimed their focus on country music. They discovered all they could about the artists, the traditions, and especially the songs. 

After gathering 101 interviews and thousands of pictures, they put together the PBS documentary "Country Music: A Film By Ken Burns."

In this special hosted by Jessie Scott, we'll hear a lot of the songs and talk with writer and producer Dayton Duncan, producer Julie Dunfey and director Ken Burns.
