  5. Ken Burns:

Country Music's never ending and Country Music's omnivorous and Country Music's not Country Music. Country Music's always been connected. There's no border. No passports required, that allows you to go into RB or allows you to go into jazz or allows you to go into folk or rock. It is, in fact, one of the parents of rock with RB.
