Episode 6: Will the Circle Be Unbroken? (1968-1972)

Summary

How, between 1968 and 1972, country music responded to a US nation divided by the Vietnam War. Army captain-turned-songwriter Kris Kristofferson set a new lyrical standard, and artists like Bob Dylan and the Byrds found a recording home in Nashville. Plus, a hippie combo from California, the Nitty Gritty Band, created a landmark album that bridged the gap between the generations. Narrated by Peter Coyote.
