Few knew it, but Sam Phillips' original recordings after he started his studio were country - not blues. Now the story of Phillips' involvement in country music from 1950 until 1959 is told in full. There's Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins, of course, but the real story lies in artists like Ernie Chaffin
