Episode 6| Will the Circle Be Unbroken? | 1968 – 1972 | Ken Burn's Country Music on NPT

With the Vietnam War intensifying, America is more divided than ever. Country music is not immune to the divisions. Kris Kristofferson, a former Rhodes Scholar and Army captain, becomes a writer whose lyricism sets a new standard for country songs. Bob Dylan, the Byrds, and other non-country artists find Nashville a creative place to record. And a hippie band from California, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, comes to town to create a landmark album that bridges the gap between generations.
