The newest Ken Burns film, Country Music, will air this fall on PBS. Ken Burns is currently out on a bus tour with producer and writer Dayton Duncan, producer Julie Dunfey, and Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor. Todd Steed caught up with all four of them earlier this week for a wide ranging chat covering inspiration, race, Dolly Parton, and more. 

A Knoxville native, Todd began working at WUOT in 2006 as jazz coordinator and host of Improvisations. He is now the music director and host of of Studio 865/Flipside and Changing Course, and also produces podcasts such as Improvisations to Go and Raised in Knoxville. Todd got his start in radio at WUTK, where he served as both news and music director while earning his undergraduate degree in journalism at UT. He later earned a master’s degree in education, also at UT.
