Subject: RE: History of Country Music: BBC2
Interesting that they call it the history of country music and then start with Hank Williams.
The first one was Vernon Dalhart, then Jimmy Rogers the singing brakeman.
I was never a big fan of Hank, too uptown for me.Too many instruments, too bluesy.
Give me Wilf Carter, Hank Snow, Jim Reeves. Old Hank Snow could pick them all under the table.
