LOS ANGELES — Country music performer Marty Stuart looked to be just another in the 101 interviews collected for the new PBS documentary series “Country Music.” The production is the latest from filmmaker Ken Burns — and he found a gold mine of knowledge with Stuart.

It was Stuart’s wife, country singer Connie Smith, who provided the link between Stuart and Burns. Her son, Kerry Watkins, told her about seeing Ken Burns on TV saying that he was thinking about doing a film on country music. As soon as Stuart heard there was a possibility of such a project, he immediately knew he wanted to be part of it.
