    Watch: Rhiannon Giddens Featured on "CBS Sunday Morning"

    Rhiannon Giddens was the subject of a feature profile on CBS Sunday Morning. Giddens spoke with Sunday Morning contributor Martha Teichner about her life in music, as a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and following the release of her T Bone Burnett-produced solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, on Nonesuch Records in February 2015.

    The segment opens with Rhiannon Giddens' show-stopping performance at the one-night-only, multi-artist concert Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis at New York City's Town Hall in 2013. "How often can you witness a moment that changes a career?" Teichner asks. "Giddens was like a musical explosion onstage. What happened next was like an explosion in her life."

    The program goes on to examine the monumental months that have followed that performance, joining Giddens and her family during a recent leg of her tour for Tomorrow Is My Turn, which has been nominated for a Grammy Award, and looking at the musical road that brought her here.

    You can watch the CBS Sunday Morning piece below.
