Charlie Poole (1892-1931), groundbreaking banjoist/songwriter, is known as the "Robert Johnson of country music." With his banjo-fiddle-guitar trio, The North Carolina Ramblers, Poole wrote and recorded country music's first mega-hit single ("Don't Let Your Deal Go Down") and many other classic songs that gave birth to the music of both Bill Monroe and Hank Williams. In this one-hour music intensive documentary, host Laura Cantrell traces the origins of modern country music through the songs of Charlie Poole.
