    A great historical look at Jimmie Rodgers.

    So Mississippi birthed Country with Jimmie Rodgers, Rock, and Roll with Elvis Presley, and blues with Robert Johnson.

    It is excellent and interesting even if you are not a fan of Country music. Ken Burns does excellent work

    Peter Coyote also does a great job as narrator on his series
