American singer Jimmie Allen discussed the challenges he’s had as a Black singer in the country genre with CBS Mornings’ Nate Burleson on Friday (April 8), and how his family influence — notably, lessons gained from his mother — has helped him deal with the prejudice he’s faced in the industry.

Specifically, Allen remembers a time he encountered racism at a visit to a country radio station.

Allen said, “There was this guy that worked at this radio station, he told me straight up he didn’t like Black people. But luckily he’s not in radio no more. And country radio played my music.”
