CGiii Comment

Contemporary country music is finally coming out of the closet. The contributions of lesbian singer-songwriters are generally not the first thing that come to mind in the arena of country music, but some of the greatest hits in the genre are the work of gay women writing, producing, and persevering in an extremely traditional and corporate industry that requires most to keep their authentic selves secret for fear of committing career suicide.

Invisible explores the collective and individual journeys of these talented women, who have created hits for country music legends Barbara Mandrell, Johnny Cash, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, and so many others. Author, activist, and filmmaker T.J. Parsell brings their hidden stories, songs, and stunningly beautiful voices to light in this affirming, personal, and sensitively produced documentary featuring stellar interviews with music icons Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Pam Tillis, Chely Wright (Wish Me Away, Frameline35), Mary Gauthier, and Ruthie Foster.
