Justified: Soundtracking Harlan, Kentucky

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Now in its third season, the FX crime drama “Justified” has a soundtrack shaped by its Appalachian setting. The show's music supervisor, Greg Sill, joins us to explain how he sets the tone for the Peabody award-winning series with bluegrass and Americana. Plus: musician James Dean, of the Harlan, Kentucky-based Cumberland River Band talks about growing up with bluegrass - and tells how he's carrying the tradition forward today.

Justified would be a lot more interesting if it were filmed in Harlan County, instead of Calfornia.
