Filmmaker Name: Don Smith
Film Name: "Moss Point Mississippi" (music video)
This film is a music video for my song "Moss Point Mississippi," a broad brush depiction of a beautiful little town in Mississippi. The song made it to the nomination ballot of the 2018 Grammy awards for best American Roots song. It was recorded at Sony in Nashville and features Doug Kershaw on fiddle.
I'm a fifth generation Mississippian on my father's side and seventh on my mother's. We all lived around Moss Point since the 1850's, so I have a deep connection to the place and wanted to leave my artistic impressions of it to posterity.
The City of Moss Point partially funded the recording of the song.
