Episode Summary

EDIT
Stories Behind Southern Rock and Outlaw Country
CMT Most Shocking: Stories Behind Southern Rock and Outlaw Country is a riveting look at the stories of wild days and personal tragedies behind country music and Southern rock pioneers. The one-hour special features a group of rebels who often chafed at a rigid recording industry to make music on their own terms and includes interviews with Merle Haggard, the late Waylon Jennings, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Rodney Crowell, Montgomery Gentry and more. Actress Janine Turner hosts. Commenting on his own rebel background and prison days, Haggard says, "My dad was dead, and my mother was working; and my brother was gone. It (jail) was sort of a place to go. Jail was more fun than home was." Country's Most Shocking: Stories Behind Southern Rock and Outlaw Country includes first-hand accounts from the artists who lived the adventures, as well as musicians, witnesses, journalists and historians. Events include the deadly plane crash that killed Lynyrd Skynyrd's Southern rock cult hero and front man Ronnie Van Zant, and temporarily silenced the band; Marshall Tucker's cursed Caldwell brothers whose "Can't You See" became a rock anthem; Johnny Cash's overnight stay in a Georgia jail for drug possession; Jennings' narrow escape from a drug sting; Haggard's "fighting side;" and Jeff Bates' battle with crystal meth addiction.moreless
