An interesting addendum to the Country Music Documentary by Ken Burns and the artists he left out completely or just barely glazed over. He tries to explain it here. I am just copying the link (above). I hope the comments show up. A lot of people were pretty upset at who was left out plus felt like way too much time and attention were given to The Carter Family, where they could have been mentioned more briefly, saving room for those that got totally left out.
I was disappointed in the glossing over of Jim Reeves and the total skipping of Johnny Horton. Something I didn’t know, Johnny Horton ended up marrying the late Hank William’s wife.
