Burns uses never-before-seen footage and photographs, plus interviews with more than 80 country music artists to tell his story. The third episode is called “Hillbilly Shakespeare” and features country stars of post-war America, including Hank Williams, whose songs are inspired by his troubled and tragically short life. More installments air tonight through Wednesday, Sept. 18, and then Sunday, Sept. 22 through Wednesday, Sept. 25.
