God's Own Listening Room
This week on A Prairie Home Companion we're in Nashville, Tennessee at the beautiful and historic Ryman Auditorium. With special guests, the prolific Emmylou Harris, hairy bluegrass madman Sam Bush, and master fiddler Stuart Duncan. Plus, young hip Tennessee duo The Civil Wars, and a former host of the show, singer and fiddler Sara Watkins. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
