Country Songwriters

This week’s Deeper Roots pays tribute to a collection of country songwriters who made an impact on the American musical art form, defining the tone and story that was told. We’ll walk through nearly a hundred years of performances by the familiars: Emmylou Harris, Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash, and Ray Charles, all taking on the songs of A.P. Carter, Jimmie Rodgers, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, and Cindy Walker. We’ll also hear from Dolly, Willie, and Elvis on a cold and wet January Friday in West Sonoma County. Join Dave Stroud as he enters his seventh year hosting our two hour show live from the Sebastopol studios of KOWS Community Radio.
