A Portrait of America

Great music. Pure folk/americana/country/appalachian, all of the above music. Sadly, I don't think people like Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, and many other current stars even know it exist. If they do, they rarely, if ever, play it. It's too dated, archiac, non-relevant. About the only big name that pays tribute to his musical heritage is Marty Stuart. Most people don't feel they can "jive" to this music, but it sure-as-hell tells the story of who and what we are. [thumbup]

Notice that this one is recorded at the Ryman Auditorium, former Grand Old Opry venue, in Nashville.

 

They may have pulled up the floorboards and taken out the pews, but the music still echoes and is still performed in the hall.
