We Celebrate Mountains on Episode Three of The Forgotten Country Radio Show

From “The Big Rock Candy Mountain” by Harry McClintock to “Half Moon Rising” by Yonder Mountain String Band, it’s all about mountains on Episode Three of The Forgotten Country Radio Show.

Ever since The Bristol Sessions were first recorded in 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee by Victor Talking Machine Company producer Ralph Peer, country music has had a strong connection to the mountains–especially the Appalachian Mountains.

On this episode, Matt Hildreth and Drew Morgan discuss Country Music’s connection to the mountains and celebrate the last hundred years of recorded mountain music.

So it’s a bluegrass heavy episode as the bluegrass connection is especially strong to Appalachia.
