Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Directed by Steve Goldmann, Our Country chronicles the development of country music from its origins in the last century all the way up to modern times. This IMAX feature is packed with footage of country musicians, and includes music ranging from Jimmie Rodgers to Lyle Lovett and Dolly Parton. Proving that country music is not just a phenomenon of the south, 100 years worth of classic hits are performed in locations as diverse as the Appalachian mountains, the California deserts, and the canyons of Utah, as well as the legendary Grand Ole Opry. Other noted musicians in Our Country include Loretta Lynn, Earl Scruggs, Dwight Yoakam, Vince Gill, Crystal Gayle, Trisha Yearwood, Alan Jackson, and the Dixie Chicks.
