In anticipation of Ken Burn's Country Music documentary series, WXXI will be at Abilene Bar & Lounge giving away Country Music swag on Sunday, September 1 at 5 p.m. for this special concert with Chicago vocalist and The Ameripolitan Awards “2019 Rockabilly Female of the Year” Tammi Savoy and award winning guitarist Chris Casello. Join us for an evening of original 40s, 50s, and 60s inspired music. "Sangin" from her heart and soul is what classic soul and vintage R&B singing Miss Tammi Savoy loves to do. Born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, Miss Tammi Savoy now calls Chicago, Illinois her home. Although she has been singing since the age of three in her church choir, Miss Tammi Savoy is quickly rising and making her mark in the music industry. Savoy has toured with several elite bands as well as providing vocals for various tribute artists including a number of highly acclaimed Elvis tribute artists, Ray Charles tribute acts, and Bobby Wilson, son of the legendary Jackie Wilson.

More about Country Music
From its deep and tangled roots in ballads, blues and hymns performed in small settings, to its worldwide popularity, Country Music explores how country music evolved over the course of the twentieth century. The eight-part 16-hour series, which premieres Monday, September 15 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV, features never-before-seen footage and photographs, plus interviews with more than 80 country music artists. No one has told the story this way before.

Produced by Burns and his long-time collaborators Dayton Duncan and Julie Dunfey, the series chronicles country music’s early days, from southern Appalachia’s songs of struggle, heartbreak and faith to the rollicking Western swing of Texas, California’s honky-tonks and Nashville’s “Grand Ole Opry.” The film follows the evolution of country music over the course of the 20th century as it eventually emerges to become “America’s music.”
