Weekend music minute: gone country

Hank Williams (9/17) and Jimmie Rodgers (9/18) mixed old-time hillbilly music blues, and swing to make what we now call Country. Want more? Ken Burn’s film Country, available on Kanopy, has chapters on Rodgers (“The Rub”) and Hank (“Hillbilly Shakespeare”). You can borrow their biographies, America’s Blue Yodeler and I Saw the Light, thru inter-library loan. You can also stream their music on Hoopla.
