Country music was, originally, home-made music. It described the births, marriages and deaths that happened in every community. It celebrated love, just as it bemoaned the ill-fortune that came to every man. It was music with which all felt they could identify. As such, it occupied a unique place in white culture. The music was not manufactured, as in Tin Pan Alley, nor sophisticated, and this episode describes the process by which this change came about. Finally, we will be backstage at the Grand Ole Opry during one of its regular nationwide broadcasts, with a blessing to finish from Grand Ole Gospel Time. featuring Bill Anderson Doug Kershaw Ernest Tubb Jimmie Driftwood Jimmie Rodgers Minnie Pearl Roy Acuff Roy Rogers Tex Ritter Webb Pierce William Ivey and Stars of the Grand Ole Opry
