WNIN will be airing Country Music, a film by Ken Burns, in September and we want to give you a sneak peak with a free dinner included!

Country Music is a special docu-series that explores the history of one of the most beloved genres in music. What can you expect from this show? According to the show's website,

Explore the history of a uniquely American art form: country music. From its deep and tangled roots in ballads, blues and hymns performed in small settings, to its worldwide popularity, learn how country music evolved over the course of the 20th century, as it eventually emerged to become America’s music. Country Music features never-before-seen footage and photographs, plus interviews with more than 80 country music artists. The eight-part 16-hour series is directed and produced by Ken Burns; written and produced by Dayton Duncan; and produced by Julie Dunfey.

Country Music explores questions –– such as “What is country music?” and “Where did it come from?“–– while focusing on the biographies of the fascinating characters who created and shaped it — from the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills to Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Garth Brooks and many more — as well as the times in which they lived. Much like the music itself, the film tells unforgettable stories of hardships and joys shared by everyday people.

No one has told the story this way before.


The docu-series doesn't air until September 15th, but we want you to get a preview of the show before it airs. Join 99.5 WKDQ for a special sneak peak of Country Music on September 10th at WNIN in Downtown Evansville. Not only will you get to preview Country Music, but there will be a free dinner beforehand from Hawg N Sauce.

Seats are limited, so we will randomly select ten people to win a pair of tickets to the sneak peak of Country Music. Simply fill out the form below for your chance to win!
