A Day in the Life of Country Music

type
  • TV Show

If you’ve ever wanted to watch Lyle Lovett get his hair cut or Tammy Wynette bake cornbread, then A Day in the Life of Country Music (CBS, Oct. 1, 9-11 p.m.) is the special for you. Borrowing the premise of books like A Day in the Life of America, a team of camera people was dispatched on May 7 to follow a passel of country singers for one day. The results catch the performers working and playing, but this is a great idea done poorly, because nearly every moment looks self-consciously staged. The best scenes feature Lorrie Morgan curled up on a sofa, working out the words to a new song, and Tanya Tucker just goofing around at home with her children. The worst include Trisha Yearwood pushing her new fragrance in a department store-a shameless commercial, since Yearwood is a client of the show’s executive producer, manager Ken Kragen. C+
