Old-Time Smoky Mountain Music

This year, an album of historic music from the Smoky Mountains competed for a Grammy award. Old Time Smoky Mountain Music was up for the Best Historical Album Grammy, against the likes of Woody Guthrie and Sir Paul McCartney, among others. WUOT's Morning Edition host Chrissy Keuper has this look at the music and the history of these recordings.

Chrissy is WUOT's News Director and host of monthly public affairs talk show Dialogue. Her first job with the station was as weekend student announcer while earning her bachelor's in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee. She has been the station's local host for NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered news programs; occasionally fills in as host for WUOT's Morning and Afternoon Concerts; and has won multiple awards for her interviews, feature stories, and Dialogue.
