Note also that the CD is not the same music as the movie. It is similar but largely much commercialized. Fraud, in other words. Some prefer the CD but the value of the very fine movie is much obscured. Please see the movie. Blockbuster or somewhere.
For some update & perspective, you might be interested that the family tradition of ballad singing still exists in Madison County. Consider the Madison County Project at http://www.madisoncountyproject.org/
The viewable/downloadable documentary film is under "Video Builds." It's maybe 50 meg so you might want to be sure you have a fast line.
