Currently 5 shows posted!

Listen to the show of your choice as you surf or read your email!

The Legendary Sonny Martin
The Nashville City Limits Band


      Once upon a time The Legendary Sonny Martin and The Nashville City Limits Band loaded up and headed across town to perform at The World Famous Stockyards. They performed one of the best and most exciting shows ever performed at this club. This entire show was recorded and is now available for all visitors to this site to listen to in it's entirety.

Click here to listen to this country music radio show.

      You can listen to this show from your computer any time you want to, but you can't download it, because it's being streamed from the servers of The Country Music Planet in a way that can be listened to, but can't be downloaded, so what you really need is your own copy of this CD, and there are not too many of them left in stock, so order yours today. The show can, also, be listened to at the site where Sonny's CD of this show is available by clicking here.

Some CDs Are Tailor Made For Being Presented AS A Radio Show
That fact is definitely proven to be true by this CD

"706 ReUnion: A Sentimental Journey"
Carl Perkins & Scotty Moore

      In 1992 after Carl Perkins rebounded from a bout with throat cancer, he asked Scotty Moore to do an album with him. When Scotty said that he hadn’t played in 24 years, Carl told him, “It’s just like riding a bicycle.” They booked Sun Studio, and along with a number of other musicians, including DJ Fontana, recorded an album called "706 ReUnion: A Sentimental Journey". That's the music that is presented here.

Click here to listen to 706 REUNION

      To listen to 706 Reunion in it's entirety, click on the speakers. The complete project is over an hour long, and can be listened to as you surf the web or read your email. If you prefer, just turn up the volume and go about your chores while listening to this great production. You do not have to download the music, because it is being streamed to you in Real Audio straight from the servers of Thunderbolt Entertainment, a sister company of The Country Music Planet. You will be listening within a few seconds of clicking on the speakers. If you can't hear the music, you don't have real audio, and you need it. By clicking here you can download real audio absolutely free.

      At this time we are presenting a rerun of one of our most popular shows, "A ONE-ON-ONE INTERVIEW WITH BILLY DON BURNS". This show is being repeated at this time due to an overwhelming amount of request from the visitors to The Country Music Planet. This show was produced at Flatwoods Studios in the rolling hills just east of Nashville, TN. We want to express our gratitude to Tabby Crabb, the owner of the studio, for allowing us to do this show in such a fantastic setting.

This show was originally presented in The fall of 1999.

      Now sit back and relax while listening to the great original music and commentary of Legendary singer/songwriter, Billy Don Burns as he's being interviewed one-on-one by Jerry Mac.

Click here to listen.

Click here to go to Billy Don's site at The Country Music Planet.

      As it states at Billy Don's Official Web Site, "Friendship is hard fought and hard won - Loyalty and Honor; the strongest cards in the deck". Billy Don definitely fits in the category "TRUE FRIEND" as far as I am concerned. In this world of too many phonies and hypocrites, Billy Don stands out as a real human being. What you see is what you get with him. Billy Don is one of the straightest shooting individuals that I have ever had the opportunity to call a friend. This would be a much better world if there were more like him.
Jerry Mac

   At this time we are presenting a very interesting show that was taped live at World Famous Barbara's in World Famous Printers Alley in Nashville, TN. Jerry Mac's guests during this very entertaining show are Doug Dillard, Dan Crandall Smith, and Chari Davis.

Click here to listen.

  Host of show, Jerry Mac: Jerry Mac probably hosted more live shows at World Famous Venues in Nashville, TN during the decade of the 90s than anyone else. As the great songwriter, Tommy Smith, once said, "If Jerry Mac is there, a show must be going on". Just one of the big hits Tommy wrote was, "Every Time I Make My Mark Someone Paints The Wall" which was a hit for Tracy Lawrence. As a matter of fact, Tommy's brother, Dan Crandall Smith, a fantastic entertainer, is on this show. Jerry Mac is the individual that hosted the very first 30 minute country music radio show on the Internet. Jerry Mac was the entertainment director for "World Famous Gilley's Music Row" in Nashville for years. For the last six weeks Gilley's Music Row was open, Jerry Mac hosted all the shows including the last one.

  Doug Dillard: Doug is best known for his character "Jebbin Darling" of the Darling family on "The Andy Griffith Show" and his recordings with "The Dillards" over the past 40 years. Here is a press release concerning Doug in 2002:




   Nashville, TN - As part of legendary Arlo Guthrie's yearly concert series at Carnegie Hall in New York City, Doug Dillard, and his brother Rodney will perform with the original Dillards lineup for an exciting evening of grassroots music. They will also perform songs with folk legend, Pete Seeger, bringing their legendary acoustic folk sound to the Isaac Stern Auditorium within the Carnegie Hall complex.
    Now calling Nashville his home, Doug Dillard continues to work on several new projects weaving his own brand of banjo genius into the fabric of the Hillbilly Hollywood community.
   "This is a dream come true I never had," says Doug Dillard of his opportunity to bring string picking to New York City's finest performance hall.

Country Music Lyrics

Jerry Mac's
To Minnie Pearl

Origin Of Country Music

   When some people hear talk of country music, they think only of singers of sad songs with stereotypically twangy accents. These misconceptions did impede country music's growth at its birth, but the stereotype did not prevent it from becoming one of the most popular music forms of the 20th century. In fact, country music is one of the best-selling genres after rock/pop. This site will take you from country music's origins in the late 19th century through all the changes and sub-genres that have developed over the past 100 years or so.
   To better understand country music, it is helpful to understand the most commonly used musical instruments in the genre. The fiddle (or violin) was the most common instrument since it was easy and inexpensive to make and not a major burden to carry around. At first it was the sole lead instrument, but later it became popular to add more accompanying instruments. The banjo, brought to the American South by slaves, became popular in the mid-1800s. The guitar did not come into the picture until the early 1900s when they became mass-produced and affordable for the everyday person. At first, the guitar was only a rhythm instrument, but picking styles later became popular. Contemporary country music often uses the electric guitar, which became popular in the '50s. Other stringed instruments include the dobro, the dulcimer, the steel guitar, the mandolin, the zither, bass guitar and the autoharp. In other types of country music you might hear the accordion (since the 1920s), the harmonica, the piano (beginning in the 1930's with the rise of Western swing), washboards (as rhythm instruments) or drums (not popular until the 1960s).
