Country Music: The Spirit of America

Alternate Title(s): Our Country; Formerly Twang

bigImage OUR COUNTRY traces the development of country music from the last century to today using rare historical footage, spectacular IMAX shots filled with today’s country stars, and, of course, music that will range from the soulful tunes of Jimmie Rodgers -- the Father of Country Music -- to the jazzy influences in "16 Tons," to the patriotic climax of "Living in the PromiseLand" sung by Lee Ann Womack.

Over 50 of country music’s top stars – including Dixie Chicks, Lyle Lovett, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Earl Scruggs, Dwight Yoakam, Vince Gill, Crystal Gayle, Trisha Yearwood, Alan Jackson and others– are spotlighted as they perform the classic songs of the past 100 years in settings as varied as the canyons of Utah, the mountains of Appalachia, the deserts of California, and the stage of the Grand Ole Opry itself.
