Dallas VideoFest 27: Billy Mize and the Bakersfield Sound
Dallas VideoFest will present
Billy Mize and the Bakersfield Sound, an intimate homage that explains the mysterious alchemy of stardom and the choices and happenstance that can make or break it. This film isn’t just about a music movement - it’s about legacy and the institution of family.
When Billy was 3 years old, his father, Earnest Forth, skipped town leaving Billy and his mother to suffer the dust bowl depression of Kansas. Out of this abandonment, Billy formed strict principles of what a husband and father should be. In the face of life’s challenges his response has always been, "family first."
