Throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s, “Story Songs” weren’t just great music — they helped unite us through our shared culture, history and personal experiences. From country pop favorites to folk-rock epics, "Story Songs" relate to all of our lives.

Don McLean’s anthem “American Pie” (the number one hit for a full month in 1972), Bobbie Gentry’s iconic 1967 musical monologue “Ode to Billie Joe” (one of Rolling Stone’s Greatest Songs of All Time) and Harry Chapin’s poignant “Cat’s In The Cradle” are musical tales we all know and love.

Story Songs is Hosted by five time Grammy Award-winning singer B.J. Thomas and features performances by Don McLean, Bobbie Gentry, Glen Campbell and more.
