Appalachian music bloodlines don’t run any deeper than the families of the artists featured on this show. Bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley, who came into a wider public spotlight with his appearance in "O Brother Where Art Thou," has been one of America’s most distinct voices since the days when he and his brother Carter performed as the Stanley Brothers. His present Clinch Mountain Boys band includes his son and grandson. The humor and energy of Roni Stoneman, member of the famous Stoneman Family and twenty-year veteran of Hee-Haw, is on display in both her performances and extended interview segments. Grandson of A.P. and Sarah Carter of The Carter Family, Dale Jett carries on a tradition that helped launch American country music.
