The Blind Boys of Alabama's Jimmy Carter: Gospel, touring during Jim Crow and singing for Obama



Jimmy Carter (NOT the 39th U.S. president) is a legendary gospel singer and co-founder of The Blind Boys of Alabama. The group has been around for decades and they’ve just released their first album in six years, “Echoes of the South,” which is also the title of the first radio show they ever appeared on in the mid-1940s. Jimmy tells Tom about his love of gospel, what it was like touring in the South during segregation, and the advice he’d give to young musicians as he’s just retired at 91 years old.
