The 'Country Music Doctor' Is In

Dr. Cleve Francis is an African-American cardiologist, who moonlights as a country music artist. During a visit with NPR's Tell Me More, Francis talks about his earlier decision to leave medicine for Nashville, and why he ultimately returned to medicine.

The "country music doctor" and his band also play a few tunes for host Michel Martin from his most recent album Storytime: Live At The Birchmere.
