Episode 1 - Bobbie Gentry

Recommended Posts

The fancy lady from Chickasaw County, Bobbie Gentry rose to fame with her most memorable hit song, “Ode To Billie Joe.” In a male-dominated era of singers and songwriters, Bobbie Gentry was a standout: an early feminist icon and independent success who earned the respect and collaboration of her contemporaries with her unique Southern charm and significant catalog, most of which was written and produced by Gentry herself. After countless albums, variety shows, and Vegas revues, she mysteriously disappeared into the mist, becoming a recluse who gave up her career and hid from the public eye. Through exclusive interviews, vintage clips, and a gorgeous soundtrack; this episode celebrates Gentry’s immeasurable influence and brilliant artistry.
