Description

Waiting in the Wings: African Americans in Country Music is a documentary I helped create and produce for CMT/MTV Networks. DeFord Bailey's role in country music is unparalled, yet largely unrecognized. His struggles while performing on the Grand Ole Opry in the Jim Crow South were heartbreaking. This world-class musician persevered despite the humiliation and remains today one of the most revered country music artists.
