7:03 am
through the hull after hearing signs of life. >> knowing that the people were alive made all the difference. >> reporter: the south korean shipmates from the golden ray appearing soaked from head to toe with temperatures on the surface of the hull reaching 120 degrees. >> they were subject to some pretty tough conditions over the last day and a half. >> reporter: the gigantic vessel measuring as long as two football fields flipped over in st. simons sound on sunday. >> a cargo ship, vessel golden ray, capsized with 23 persons onboard. >> reporter: the first five crew members rescued by coast guard helicopter, the other 15 escaping by boat, leaving four trapped. >> the three were together in one spot the fourth is stuck behind glass enclosed in an engineering control room. >> reporter: the ship which transports thousands of automobiles eventually catching fire, complicating rescue operations the coast guard says their big break locating the four trapped
7:04 am
men came when tapping was heard sunday night coming from the propeller shaft area >> it was outstanding. when i heard the news that we had tap backs throughout the night, i think that really motivated the team here. >> reporter: landing a team on the ship via helicopter on monday, rescuers propelled down the side and drilled a hole through the hull, eventually bringing all four men to safety. >> their condition is relatively good for having spent close to 35 hours in the conditions they are in i know they looked super happy to be outside of that space and coming down onto the tugboat >> reporter: this morning, happiness, four men whose freedom is a breath of fresh air. the ntsb will investigate the incident to see what went wrong. the coast guard says it doesn't appear it hit anything but video shows another vessel passing by and that's when it began to list savannah >> ron, thank you so much. coast guard captain john reed is with us. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> congratulations to the coast guard on a job well done how are those rescued crew
7:05 am
members doing this morning >> i haven't got an actual update, i know as they came off the ship, they were in varying degrees of elation, and just very tired they're being checked at the local hospitals and i have not got word yet on how they're all doing, but to see that last crew member come off pretty much under his own power was outstanding. >> what were the conditions that they were in for these last few hours? >> the last few hours, we know the three, the group of three were in a compartment that was pretty much dry. but they had -- they all had some degree of oil and other kind of lubricants on them so as i'm sure you can imagine, as that ship tipped over in the spaces they were in, made quite a mess the final one, when he came out, he was also wet and covered in
7:06 am
oil and lubricants, but it was just a pretty -- i'm sure it was more tragic for them inside and harrowing than what we saw on the outside, and to see them get to freedom was amazing >> they must have been so happy to see the faces of the coast guard team there how difficult was this rescue? >> this rescue was very difficult. you know, it started about 2:00 a.m. on sunday morning, and the coast guard crews from air station savannah, from coast guard brunswick, the tug company, miran, cito in brunswick, the glen county fire rescue came together to get 20 people off in the first couple of hours, and that was no easy feat in the middle of the night on a vessel that is laying on its side >> it's incredible to read about how this happened where your team members are actually tapping on the hull to see if they'll get a tap back, and how they must have felt when they heard something and recognized it's not just cargo clinking around, it's people, they're in
7:07 am
there and they're alive. >> absolutely, savannah, and that's great news, earlier in the day on sunday morning, we were not getting tap backs, but that crew was smart enough to find their way to be able to actually tap on the hull, and that really drove the team of the salvage company to get technical rescue teams in here, and they did so immediately and through the night formulated an outstanding plan that they were able to enact throughout the day, and i'm sure you saw the photos but what an amazing group of people from don john smith, defiant marine, all those guys came together to put that plan in motion and adapt throughout the day. it really came down to managing risk there's always risk in the things that we do, and you know, we had to balance that risk, and that operation continues as they look to mitigate the environmental impacts of this event as well as get the ship righted. >> it is an incredible feat of engineering but also just courage and we're happy to share
7:08 am
the story. i know you've got a lot of work ahead of you in clearing the cargo ship and getting the waterway open. thank you for your time this morning, sir, we really appreciate it. >> thank you. also breaking overnight, a new missile launch from north korea just hours after the regime signalled a willingness to resume stalled nuclear talks with the united states nbc's kelly cobiella has the very latest on this development. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: hoda, good morning. another weapons test by the north koreans. they've sent two projectiles east towards japan overnight, apparently aimed at getting president trump's attention. this morning, north korea again ignoring u.s. requests to stop test launches. they've fired off nine testing short range missiles and rockets since may. and now a 10th launch overnight. the two projectiles detected by the south koreans either ballistic missiles or rockets were fired from the area around
7:09 am
the north korean capital pyongyang, flying about 200 miles east japan's defense minister warning that north korea is using the launches to improve its missile technology, to reach targets in south korea, including american military bases the latest launch overnight comes just hours after north korea announced they wanted to restart nuclear talks later this month. the north koreans trying to step up pressure on washington three months after that historic handshake between president trump and kim jong un at the dmz, the border between north and south korea. north korea now saying the u.s. has to come to the table with new proposals or the talks are off for good president trump called the offer interesting. >> we'll see what happens. in the meantime, in the meantime, we have our hostages back we're getting the remains of our great heroes back. and we've had no nuclear testing for a long time. >> reporter: secretary of state mike pompeo said over the
7:10 am
weekend that kim jong un has not yet violated his commitment to the president to stop launches but that the u.s. is disappointed by the short range tests and would like them to stop this morning, the white house said they're aware of reports of this latest launch and are continuing to monitor the situation. savannah, hoda >> kelly cobiella with us from london, thanks. craig found an intriguing story this morning. >> good morning to you former senior russian official who reportedly worked as a spy for the cia has been outed, found living in washington, d.c. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams is following this one for us pete, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, craig he is a former official of the russian government in a job with access to kremlin secrets and he was living in a washington, d.c. suburb under his actual name now there are new concerns this morning about his safety current and former government officials tell nbc news that the
7:11 am
former senior russian official and possible spy for the cia is living in the washington area under u.s. protection. nbc news is withholding the man's name and other key details at the request of u.s. officials who say reporting the information could endanger his life >> if you spy long enough and take enough risks for the cia as a russian official, the chance of discovery increases. they decided to bring him out. >> reporter: nbc news correspondent ken dilanian went to the man's home and he wasn't there. five minutes later two young men in an suv came racing up the street and asked what dilanian was doing there. >> it was pretty clear they were u.s. government agents alarmed by the idea that a random stranger was approaching this person's house >> reporter: all this comes after a cnn report that the cia spirited one of its top spies out of russia after the u.s. became concerned he was in danger of being discovered "the new york times" reports that he was instrumental to the cia's conclusion that russian president vladimir putin ordered
7:12 am
the campaign to interfere in the 2016 u.s. presidential election. nbc news has not confirmed that the russian gave the cia information about the election but he does fit the profile of someone who may have had access to information about putin's activities and would have been recruitable by american intelligence officials >> this is not a secret to the russians they knew that this person was a spy and had been exfiltrated. >> reporter: this morning, a kremlin spokesperson says the man did, in fact, work for the russian government, but says he was not a senior official and that he was fired a few years ago. the spokesman says the american news reports are quote pulp fiction. >> what happens to the guy now are officials worried about his safety now that russia and the public know that he's in washington, d.c. >> yes, indeed current and former u.s. intelligence officials say this man remains in danger, given what has happened to other former russian intelligence figures. recall that last year sergey

7:14 am
a summer which saw a number of deadly mass shootings, including back-to-back massacres in texas and ohio democrats are pushing legislation already passed in the house that would expand the federal background check system to include private sellers >> we're saying that people who have some reason to believe cannot be trusted with guns, they've been convicted of a crime, they have been involved in domestic violence, whatever, shouldn't be allowed to have guns and that's just common sense >> reporter: they want senate majority leader mitch mcconnell to call for a vote >> if this bill is not passed, mitch mcconnell and the republicans in the senate and the president will have hell to pay. so let's save time let's just get it done now >> reporter: but mcconnell says he won't move until president trump signals what he'd be willing to sign into law the president's position, hard to pin down. >> we need meaningful background
7:15 am
checks we already have very strong background checks but we're going to be filling in some of the loopholes. >> reporter: some republican senators still skeptical. >> i'm interested in facts because we're dealing with people's constitutional rights. >> reporter: public opinion is clear, another new poll showing wide support in both parties for tougher gun safety laws. >> gun legislation has languished on capitol hill for almost two decades now what makes you hopeful now will be different >> it's a different era. never have we had 90% of gun owners for background checks never have we had so many people in the nra for background checks. >> reporter: the democratic led house judiciary committee is set to debate three more gun control bills, one that would keep guns out of the hands of people convicted of a hate crime, another that would ban high-capacity magazines. we have learned the president is set to meet with a handful of top congressional republicans at the white house.

>> with over 21 million subscribers, ryan of ryan toys review has become a household name with parents and kids watching this 7-year-old play with toys over 31 billion times. >> welcome to ryan toys review. >> but this morning the popular youtube channel is under fire. in a new complaint to the federal trade commission filed by the watchdog group truth in advertising. the channel's administrators are accused of misleading their youngest fans. the group saying ryan and his parents haven't done enough to let viewers know when they're watching sponsored videos. claiming ryan toys review blurs the distinction between advertising and organic content for its intended audience. >> i have an idea, what about we go to carl's jr. >> reporter: the group says 92% of the videos posted between january and july included promotions geared toward children under the age of 5.
7:42 am
the channel's sponsors have included toy maker, hasbro, chuck e. cheese and even netflix. >> the channel does comply with ftc guidelines with that disclosure and an on-screen statement for sponsored videos, truth in advertising says those disclosures are insufficient, adding research shows kids under the age of 5 are unable to identify television commercials and distinguish them from other forms of content shion and loann kaji run their son's massive channel. in a statement to nbc news they say in part, the well being of our viewers is our top priority. we follow all platforms terms of service and all existing laws and regulations, including advertising disclosure requirements but in the end, will kids know the difference >> so we reached out to the ftc and youtube for comment and both declined but youtube pointed us to theirser policies, which
7:43 am
the site is recommended for people over the age of 13. they recommend that parents ewe their youtube kids app if they plan to let their children on the site without parental supervision. >> in terms of process here, what happens after a complaint is filed with the ftc. >> if the ftc gets enough complaints they can file a claim against the contents creator in this case that would be the administrators for ryan's page the reality is that doesn't happen that often and of course in this case the ftc would not comment. >> and youtube says the site is supposed to be used by 13 and older. >> 13 and older. >> i wonder how they police that >> they're saying if you're going to let your kids use it without parental supervision, you shouldn't use their app. >> of course >> thank you very much. why don't we switch gears. mr. roker, do you have a check of the weather >> we do we have heavy showers and thunderstorms from michigan to iowa, all pushing through, and we've got the risk of severe weather through the plains today, looking at damaging winds, hail, and can't rule out a tornado or two as this system pushes to the east

8:11 am
you know, next sunday but i was able to find an amazing doctor, dr. wallace, and we figured out what the problem is, and i unfortunately had to get put on medication to stop the symptoms. i tried everything natural for the longest time, and we chose the best route for me, so luckily right now everything is under control. >> feeling good. >> but autoimmune issues are scary, and when something happens, you definitely, when you get a diagnosis, i didn't realize i would be one of those people, but before i knew what it was, when it's really up in the air, you get in your head and you create, you think of every worst possibility of what's going to happen, and how you're going to live your life, and you really do get into this like little depression for a minute i got myself out of it, but it was really scary to have to go through that. >> we want to talk about how you live your life i just want to say, you walked in this studio, and you had to get micced and people had to be taking care of you, and i watched how kind you were to each person. you said, oh, that's okay.
8:12 am
don't worry, am i in the way, you're not -- i think there are people who may perceive you in a different way. they don't know everything about you. you try to put out, you know, i guess your authentic self. tell us a little bit about that. >> i was a stylist once, i was running around, and so i -- everyone's job is so important, no matter what it is, what you do, i respect everybody, so thank you for, you know, that's just i guess. >> you. >> you know, what i feel like is normal but i think it's important, you know, to just be yourself no matter what, and i didn't always feel that way. i always felt like at the beginning of my career they want you to be this person and you have to be this, and always tried to please everyone else, and at the end of the day, if you're just kind to everyone and yourself, that's what i try to teach my kids, no matter where you are, everybody is the same, treat everybody the same, and be kind to everybody. >> yeah. >> well, you have a camera on
8:13 am
you so much, do you ever daydream about, like, what it would be like if you were just you, and anonymous and walking through life, and nobody knew you and you didn't have all of that scrutiny. i know it's brought you many wonderful, beautiful things, but privacy can be beautiful too. >> totally, and i have learned how to take my privacy, and i have learned how to do things private and where to eat, and you know, before i was going to every hot spot and every place where you could possibly be seen, and so i definitely know the balance of privacy, and how to take that for myself, for my own, you know, mental well being, and the family does too we live in an area where we can walk the kids and go out and we really do respect our privacy, and each other's boundaries, so it's a good balance of figuring that out. >> i like the lessons that you try to teach your kids because your kids go to school, and i would imagine, and i don't know but people would come up to your kids and say, oh, wait, aren't you, aren't you, aren't you, how
8:14 am
do you let your kids kind of have a normal upbringing in life given that they have such kind of famous parents? >> well, i think especially having a lot of cousins and a lot of best friends that we've had, like all of my friends kids, we kind of all had kids at the same time, so everyone, they have a really good group of friends, of support team and when that does happen, you know, there are times when we're walking someplace and someone will call my daughter's name and say something and she'll look, how do they know me you know, and i'll explain it to them in a really nice way, and i just get them to understand that, like, none of that matters and just have fun and be kind, and my kids are so extremely normal under the circumstances and that makes me really happy. >> it's a great accomplishment meanwhile, you're studying to be a lawyer, which is just incredible you have enough going on as it is, with four kids and we'll talk about your product launch in a moment, what do you like
8:15 am
about it because to really be so committed, you know, everyone's going out, and you're staying to study for a contracts quiz. >> last night there was a big party here in new york, it's fashion week, and i have a test coming up, so i have to stay in and i have to study, and if i'm up, you know, for work, that's what i got to do. >> are you surprised how much you love it? >> i love it and what's really surprising to me is i took a test a week ago, and my attorneys who are overseeing everything, they said if you -- if i wasn't sitting here watching you take this test, i would have totally thought you cheated. >> wow >> you're kidding. >> they're like, you don't even need to -- i don't know if i'm really good under pressure and i logically really think about how i would handle something and how the law is and like i love it. i love being a part of, you know, the cut 50 family who has taken on this apprenticeship, how you can do it in california and study the law this way
8:16 am
i love it. i mean, i'm so passione about it, and it's what i do all the time. >> your passions seem to overlap alice marie johnson who i had the privilege of meeting that day she got out, thanks to you. >> yes. >> she also appeared in a new ad for your shapewear i was like, wow, all the words collide. tell us about this shapewear >> yeah, well, i was really excited to have all of the people that i love and respect and i have everyone from my mom friends to my best friend growing up, allison, to alice, every sister of mine, so that was really exciting to me just to start a brand that i feel like is a necessity. i mean, i wear it everywhere i go i wear shapewear, and i always have, for over a decade. i have always worn shapewear and i feel like, sometimes it's not the coolest thing to talk about, and it's not really
8:17 am
modernized but i wanted people and women to feel confident and comfortable, and i used to take shapewear and cut it up and make my own styles of it and sew it back up. so this is all of the practice that i have had as a stylist, as just a mom needing that extra help, or just to feel comfortable as a lining. sometimes my pants are just so itchy and uncomfortable but i love them and i want to wear them and i need that extra layer of protection, so i don't think i've ever been so excited about a project or so confident about something. >> you're like, this is one thing i know >> sometimes i'm like, i hope they like it, i hope they understand, you know, with makeup it's different, everyone has a different style. i'm like, no, no, everyone needs skims, everyone needs shapewear and i'm really proud of it >> let's talk about the name you have been working on this forever, you came out with the name, kimono, a cute play on words, there was a lot of
8:18 am
controversy whether it had inappropriately appropriated a different culture. i know that was a tough moment for you as a businesswoman and you decided to change the name take me into that process because, you know, we're all, it's one thing to have something be controversial but then you decided, okay, i heard you, and i'm going to change. >> yes. >> at great expense. tell me about that process. >> so for the name, kimono, you know, for me, when i looked at the name and the team presented to me that name, i thought, oh, my gosh, how cute, my name i'm so inspired by the japanese culture, i didn't understand that it would have been offensive. we ran it by retailers, a bunch of people that we respected. everyone seemed to really like the name as soon as it came out, there was so much backlash, and i didn't respond immediately i waited a good day to see how i felt about it and to see -- i called a lot of my friends and i called a lot of people to get advice from it, and i really understood
8:19 am

8:34 am
8:35 am
8:36 am
we're back with a very personal story from our good friend, dr. oz. >> that's right, during the season premier of his show, he revealed his mother suna has been diagnosed with alzheimer's. we're going to speak with dr. oz about it in a moment maria shriver sat down to talk with him about why he's sharing this personal story with the world. >> my mother was recently diagnosed with alzheimer's. >> an emotional dr. oz opening up like never before. >> i fear i may have missed some of the signs i don't fear it, i know it >> the long-time tv host revealing his 81-year-old mother's diagnosis coming months after losing his father to kidney failure, at times getting candid about his own guilt and frustration with the disease >> i suffered what i think many go through, which is the guilt that you missed the boat, the clues. and because we didn't tell each other the truth in my family, it delayed everything >> the truth, the warning signs that so many miss.
8:37 am
>> we all think we'll figure it out when it's happening because it's so easy i'm here to tell you, it's not easy to find that slithering snake in the grass. >> dr. oz did notice a sign, he says his mother was more stubborn than usual which led to her getting tested for the disease this summer. doctors confirmed she had alzheimer's. >> and i see her beautiful eyes going gray and going thoughtless. i see the memories melting away, and i realize i could have slowed that down, if i had gotten to her, if i had thought about it her own son missed it. >> does it scare you about you >> it scares me big time about me >> dr. oz was tested for his risk of developing the disease, and revealed the results on his show, where he learned he carries one of the genes for alzheimer's but he also carries a protective gene as well. >> that's better >> as a father, and grandfather,
8:38 am
he worries about the future of his own family and the thought of losing his mother >> and i had a great bit of news when daphne had her baby girl, daphne is my oldest daughter, my mom is very close to daphne. my mom remembered daphne but couldn't process the daughter part all of a sudden you realize there will be a day when my mom forgets me, her first-born son that's tough >> do you think about that >> yeah, i'm going to lose my mom twice, right i'll lose the woman i love, and loved me and then one day i'll lose her body but it won't be at the same time >> wow that's a really, really revealing interview, dr. oz. >> i've got to say, thousands and thousands of people wrote on social media and other forms to me, and about half of them, it was because it was a shared experience i had no idea how many of us are going through this 16 million americans taking care
8:39 am
of their loved ones, about 6 million people with alzheimer's and it's the same story. they lose their truth as our family did we struggle. who wants to be the one that puts their hand up and says, there's something wrong with mom. >> you feel like if you're an optimist, she forgot she looks great today. i can understand, you know your mom, you wouldn't think to go down that road, so what was it that made you say yes, we have to go down that road. >> my mom was always very stubborn, known for being stubborn, but she became so obstinate about certain things i began to realize it didn't make sense, and it was because she wasn't understanding what i was getting at and that's what i wanted to share with everybody, so they don't make the same mistakes i did. it's not obvious to find the signs but they're there, problems with basic judgment about space. mom wants to put a sofa over here and move it to this corner, it won't fit there, and you think, mom doesn't have good spatial relations, mom's not processing information word searching, my mom is an
8:40 am
articulate woman, instead of using the word beautiful, she would say more prettier. she would have to get around words she couldn't remember. these are subtle clues, and i say them now, they are obvious to me. when they were happening, i denied it, i didn't want to believe it my father, kbaud god bless him, i think he enabled some of that. he didn't want to acknowledge his 60 years of marriage had a problem he couldn't cure he was a doctor too. >> you talked about feeling guilty, which of course, you know, we're all just humans doing the best that we can, i hope you don't get guilty. but what could you have done anyway i mean, even if you had gotten the diagnosis, how could you have helped? >> the big breakthrough id, we're not great at treating alzheimer's yet, we have good ideas of how to reduce the chance of it starting, preventing it from occurring, and that's what i went through once you know those signs and we'll put the signs up on, i want to share what i learned when i went through the intensive evaluation because what i went through is what everyone should be going
8:41 am
through. first off if we do the things to prevent alzheimer's, our brains actually get younger, we remember words quicker, get sharper, there's a benefit today as well as avoiding alzheimer's but first thing, if you can see your belly, everyone in america, look down, if you can see your belly, i can tell you your brain is shrinking, big belly meets small brain. if it creates a metabolic disarray, you start to predispose yourself to conditions bike alzheimer's. so reduce your waist size. it will help things like cholesterol, and any kind of activity that's regimented and rigorous, intermittent rapid -- >> like physical stuff. >> like sprinting quickly for a minute it's those types of training that are valuable, and really things likes meditation and prayer wail work because you exercise your brain in a different way. and it's important to do that because you build new connections and you can overcome whatever the alzheimer's might be causing to begin with
8:42 am
>> how is your mom doing >> today she's pretty good some good days, some bad days. s she remembers a lot. it hurts me that i have to repeat every day that she has another great granddaughter but it's the long term gain i'm fearful of my show is about the power one person can make a difference be that person in your family's life, save a life. >> doctor oz, thank you. we thank you so much a lot of good information. we have a lot of talent between legendary film maker ken burns, grammy winner vince gill >> they're going to tell us all about ken's new series that takes a deep dive into the history of country music fascinating. first, this is "today" on nbc. that takes a deep
8:43 am
8:44 am
welcome back, legendary film maker ken burns has a new documentary series premiering this weekend on pbs. it's called "country music". >> one of the many artists
8:45 am
featured in the film is 21 time grammy winner vince gill who talks about what it's like to write a country song take a look. ♪ you've got that sad, sad feeling from a broken heart ♪ >> i don't know whether you write the song or the song writes you the language has been around for longer than any of us, you know, and it's just our job to pick pieces of language up that move us and tie them together ♪ i make everything all right >> i have to go back and download that. that song is timeless! >> ken burns, vince gill, good to see both of you >> thanks. >> you have done documentaries on wars and national parks and baseball country music, eight parts, 16.5 hours, how did you get here? >> with my heart this is american history firing on all cylinders it's who we are. it's another way to see the
8:46 am
complicated 20th century and it's also for today a time where we can bring ourselves together. country music reminds us we're all in the same boat together. the themes of a country song are the themes of human experience, of love and loss, two four-letter words that most of us are uncomfortable with. we disguise it, it's about pickup trucks that's small when you hear go rest high on that mountain by vince. he says at the end of the day, all i ever wanted from music is to be moved. country music is telling us about basic human experiences and that we're all together in this that it's only us, there's no them and that's good medicine right now. >> where do you start with something like this, ken, you want to go this far back. >> our writer dayton duncan discovered a moment in 1923 when radio, this brand new medium hits phonograph records that are being produced, the first country stuff. and we go back and collect all
8:47 am
the antecedents. the banjo is from africa and the fiddle is from europe and the briti british isles. we start there, collect the history of it and move forward through the 20th century country music, which we tend to label, and in silo as one thing, has always been many many different things, and has always been curious and striving for the same things. you don't need a passport to do country music or to change from country to the rhythm and blues or pop or folk or classical or rock. country is one of the parents of rock 'n' roll. >> vince, what has country music become, because i remember when i was little, you know, you had sort of traditional country music or at least i thought it was traditional country music, but now it seems as if there's been this evolution, you know, whether it's lil nas x or taylor swift for a while who was considered country
8:48 am
talk to me a little bit about where it was and what it is now. >> if you're going to do a comparison, you have to do all music. it's not fair to take country music, and say only country music has changed because jazz has changed, rock 'n' roll has changed, rhythm and blues has changed. there's hip hop, rap, every form of music has found a new way to communicate with people. and we're no different we are so grateful to ken and dayton and julie for taking this on and from my viewpoint, finally giving us some dignity and some respect that we have longed for ever since we started making this music. >> that was a great quote in the documentary where garth brooks says everybody is trying to define country music, what does it sound like. is it hillbilly, is it jazz. he said it's right here. country music is what's inside your heart in those stories that are told. >> that's exactly right. the song writer har len howard said it's three chords of the truth that acknowledges that those three chords might suggest
8:49 am
a simplicity, but the other side of that, the truth, is about boring right into who you are. you think about hank williams. he says the silence of a falling star lights up a purple sky, and as i wonder where you are, i'm so lonesome i could cry. >> people are trying to protect something about country music, they don't want it to evolve is that what it is what are you worried about >> all musical forms are trying to expand and learn new things, and artists are trying to cross the boundaries and people within that genre are equally saying but we can't go that far without also remembering where we came from and it's true in every musical form, and it's really true in country. you see periods of vast experimentation and people coming back and saying i need to get back to my roots >> vince, what is your favorite country song. >> might be "mama tried" or "wildwood flower."
8:50 am
the first i ever learned to play on the guitar. the first lead guitar player in the history of country music was a woman, mother maybell carter >> the african-american influence of country music, nobody talks about, they think it doesn't exist, it doesn't exist, and i love the female reference as well. >> there were strong women from the very beginning, and hank williams said he learned everything he needed to know about music from rufus t. payne. >> why is it hard for country music artists who are women to get on the radio >> that's a problem right now, but they're usually popula everywhere else but radio play, but there's a good old boy network with regard to that. but that will change >> that's your next documentary. what is next for you >> ernest hemmingway and the american revolution, and muhammed ali and the u.s. and the hall cast. >> i want to be in your brain for ten minutes. >> you don't want to be in >> vince, good to see you. thank you so much. >> it's called country music it premiers this sunday on pbs check out vince's new album, it's called "okie.
