    Before Elvis and Bill Haley remodelled black music into new forms, Jimmie Rodgers' style in the 1920s and 1930s borrowed from the work chants of African Americans and the guitar style of workers and hobos he met on the railroad. This investigation into the roots of country music charts its development from Rodgers through to Johnny Cash and Emmylou Harris.
