Carlos DeFord Bailey
Born Carlos Deford Bailey in Nashville, TN, Carlos was immensely blessed with talent being the son of "Nashville Blues Legend" Deford Bailey, Jr., and the grandson of world famous Grand Ole Opry Star, Deford Bailey, Sr. who was the first performer ever introduced on the Grand Ole Opry. Legend has it that he gave the Opry its name.

He competed in talent shows, performed at PTA meetings and community centers. By the time he graduated to junior high school, he was a seasoned performer.
