So You Think You Don't Like Country Music?

Live from Glasgow, Deacon Blue's lead singer traces the roots, influences and origins of today's music and song-writing.

Live from Glasgow, Deacon Blue’s lead singer Ricky Ross explores the origins of today's music. Discover some of the brilliant records he's found on his song-writing and performance travels, and see the common themes which have influenced songs and music making over the last 100 years.

Country music is the raw, human stories of ordinary people. It's the high lonesome sound of rural folk who've carried their own strains from different parts of the world and, at its best, it can make you laugh and carry you through the darkest of times. It's too varied to be easily dismissed and without it there would be none of the great songs or artists we consider to be part of the canon of popular music today.
