COUNTRY MUSIC Screening Events

Columbia, Spartanburg & Charleston

South Carolina ETV and the ETV Endowment invite you to celebrate the premiere of Ken Burns' new PBS documentary, COUNTRY MUSIC, with film screening events located in Columbia, Charleston and Spartanburg. Please see event details below. 

Directed and produced by Ken Burns, this sweeping, multi-episode series chronicles the history of a uniquely American art form, rising from the experiences of remarkable people in distinctive regions of our nation. From southern Appalachia's songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking western swing of Texas, from Calfornia honky tonks to Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, follow the evolution of country music over the course of the 20th century, as it eventually emerged to become America's music. The series premieres on SCETV on Sunday, September 15th at 8:00 PM. #CountryMusicPBS
