Then the Emergency Broadcast System interrupted, took control of my TV screen, and informed me of a tornado warning the next county over. When they came back, they were already to the point of Marty Stuart performing the song. I missed the whole climax of them talking about the song and it's genesis. Grrr.
On another note, something else about this show is slightly annoying. They've been recapping the countdown every time they come back from a commercial. This show is part documentary, part concert. And as they recap the songs, the ones that made the list that were from people like Faith Hill, Brooks & Dunn, etc. (i.e., the newer songs) are getting huge crowd response, while truly great songs like "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" and songs by Kitty Wells, Ernest Tubb, Eddy Arnold, etc. (i.e., the classics, the ones that set the way, the ones that will still be on a list like this in fifty years) are often met with silence or reserved applause from the crowd. I tell you, kids these days. No appreciation for the standards. The only exceptions were Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. I did get a kick out of that.
