Autry Museum Ken Burns Documentary Screening "Country Music"
Posted June 19, 2019

Dust off your denim for a night of Americana on the Autry lawn with singer-songwriter Austin McCutchen and an exclusive sneak preview of Ken Burns' upcoming documentary, Country Music. You will even hear from the director himself during a discussion on this quintessentially American art form. The event will include activities, a live performance by country singer-songwriter Austin McCutchen, a dog Western-wear costume contest, and a panel discussion with Burns moderated by Times columnist Patt Morrison. Bring a picnic or enjoy a variety of food truck fare!

The documentary, written by Dayton Duncan, chronicles country music's early days, from Southern Appalachia's songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking Western swing of Texas, California's honky-tonks and Nashville's "Grand Ole Opry." Including footage of Autry Museum founder Gene Autry, the film follows the evolution of country music over the course of the 20th century as it eventually emerges to become "America's music."
