About Billy Connolly's Great American Trail Season 1, Episode 3 : Episode 3
This week begins deep in Virginia on the trail of bootleggers dealing in the illegal drink moonshine. From there Billy follows the trail of the underground railroad and the amazing woman who led hundreds of slaves to their freedom, meeting one of the family members keeping her memory very much alive. Then stopping off to encounter the baffling sight of a farm filled with giant sculpted heads of all the American Presidents. From there it's onto mining country…..and the town that's dealing with the biggest epidemic in American history, the opioid crisis. They say that all of country music can be traced back to one family, the Carter family, and, in a pinch yourself moment, Billy visits the home of the family that put country music on the map. Then it's to the backroom of Manuel Cuuevas's atelier, the flamboyant designer who put Elvis in that goldsuit, Cher in bell bottoms and dressed the Beatles. Ending in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry and the hallowed stage where Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash performed.
