"born in bristol: the untold story of the birth of country music"
Everyone knows where Rock n' Roll came from, but no one knows where Country Music was born. Combining fictional reality (re-enactments that play more like scenes from a narrative movie) and interviews with Country Music legends such as Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Steve Earle, and Sheryl Crow, this documentary feature film shines a light on one of the most unrecognized yet momentous occasions in Country Music history: The 1927 Bristol Sessions, where popular Country Music had its commercial birth.
