No talk of David Allan Coe's more troubling material in their discussion of race issues, I noticed.

Spoiler Alert: "If The South Woulda Won" by Hank Jr doesn't come up during the Ken Burns documentary. The cover for that single is.. yeah. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_the_South_Woulda_Won

At our annual family reunion my Uncle John will always bust out ‘16 tons’ when it’s music night.
  Wed. 10/9/19 7:26pm BH:

somehow the cover for that single looks like a Big Dog t-shirt design and I'm not sure that company existed in 1988

The Wanda Jackson album Third Man put out had a sound chip in it like a greeting card so when you open the gatefold sleeve a song clip plays.

Lil' Brenda Lee : upload.wikimedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/9/19 7:44pm ultradamno:

I remember when Rachel Sweet came out she got Brenda Lee comparisons for being a small redhead with a surprisingly big voice. The earliest clips of Brenda in the show are startling in the disparity of the visual and the sound.

These guys ever play music?

Great Show Guys,
Deke Dickerson had this to say about Jack Whites' Do.
"I hate to pick on hairstyles, but...most celebrities pay their hair stylists a LOT of money--if Jack White is paying someone ANY amount of money, he should fire them. I think Jack White is probably a cool guy and I thought he had some good comments about Loretta, but when you are filmed for a Ken Burns documentary wearing Ed Grimley's hairdo, it makes you question everything that comes out of his mouth."
  Wed. 10/9/19 7:56pm BH:

Jack White tried, but he couldn't approach Marty Stuart for having ridiculous hair.
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 7:56pm JakeGould:

For reference this: www.pbs.org...

Then look at this: media.salon.com...

Good rally back. Who knew you guys read this stuff? No body’s business but my own.

And many references to the banjo being of African origin. So the banjos count.

I absolutely love Charlie's Pride!!!

@ timurf, that is an excellent idea. enjoying this today.

The thing about this playlist page is if I walk away for a minute and forget about it I'll get a start by mistaking it for a blue screen of death.
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:15pm Gaylord Fields:

Becky, we need to claim that Charlie Rich is black to get him on our upcoming show somehow!
Avatar Wed. 10/9/19 8:16pm Becky:

Let's brainstorm on that one, Gaylord!!

Behind closed doors Charlie Rich was really a wonderful human being...
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:24pm one good eye:

I loved Charlie’s orchestra leader. Couldn’t they follow the basic song he was playing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/9/19 8:26pm ultradamno:

One of my favorite things altogether about the Ken Burns doc was how much, I think it was Billy Sherrill, really got into describing George Jones' "beady-eyed" opossum features.
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:28pm Chuck:

Uhhh huh!!!

...and also the story about how they thought they were setting Willie up for a setback by releasing Red Headed Stranger.
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:31pm sean kershaw:

Now that's a segway! 'Retha 2 Willy!
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:31pm The Butterman:

Wow, this is a surprise!
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:33pm Zydeco Phil:

Thanks for a Cajun funkadelic night
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:34pm CC:

I think that his album Phases and Stages really set the stage for Willie!!!
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:35pm The Butterman:

What’s next, Parliaments One nation under a groove with the banjo playing muther plunker on banjo?
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:36pm Chas:

I always kind of liked his song about Cowboys being secretly frequently in love with each other or something like that???
  Wed. 10/9/19 8:37pm Sean Kershaw:
