In coordination with the national release of Ken Burns’ documentary about the history of country music, Pioneer PBS is releasing a locally produced companion documentary Country Music: Made in Minnesota which combines compelling interviews, commentary and music selections from Minnesotans who have shaped the sounds of our beloved country music from the stage and audiences alike.

Narrated and produced by former KARE 11 news anchor Diana Pierce, the half hour documentary touches on stories about Ardis Wells from Alexandria, the Walt Benton Hillbilly Rainbow Band from Dovray, WE Fest in Detroit Lakes and the Flame Bar in Minneapolis. The program features interviews with Mylan Ray of Pipestone, Jeffrey Krueger of Detroit Lakes, Sherwin Linton of Minneapolis and several other figures who contributed to the development and popularity of country music in the North Star State.
