Merle Haggard, Lynn Anderson, Roy Clark, Donna Fargo, and Barbara Mandrell - all destined to become country superstars - are seen here in remarkable TV performances, taped when they were only 'stars on the rise'. Singing their latest singles, plugging their new albums, chatting with interviewers and showcasing a host of musical skills, artists who later became adored icons of American popular culture can be seen in the early (and sometimes nervous) moments of their first emergence on the scene.
