Hard Times and Honky Tonks: Dale Watson, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
The sounds may seem old but the songs are not. This week on American Routes we visit with a few musicians who are known for crafting modern country music from old-time inspirations. Gillian Welch and David Rawlings share with us how they fit "an electric peg into an acoustic hole."
