Before the Big Bang tells the story of the seminal recordings that laid the foundation for the so-called “Big Bang of Country Music”—the historic recordings made in Bristol in 1927. Before the Big Bang spans 6 CDs and features more than 160 recordings (many of them now one-of-a-kind) going as far back as 1890. Learn more ahead of the release at our Before the Big Bang website, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.
