5 Unusual American Music Documentaries to Stream for the 4th of July
By Courtney E. Smith
Independence Day celebrates, among other things, the ratification of the Declaration of Independence, a document our Founding Fathers wrote as a reaction to their not at all amicable decision to part ways with the British government and create a sovereign nation out of 13 colonies. The best known line in the thing is the second sentence, which reads, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
All this is to say, that if your pursuit of happiness over your three day weekend happens to include couch surfing and on-demand video watching, which is certainly one of your unalienable rights as an American, we’ve scouted out five distinctly American and wholly unusual music documentaries you might enjoy watching.
