Gerald Lester “Jerry” Byrd - the king of lap steel guitar. He has a track record that includes recording with both Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, and teaching both Jerry Garcia and Jimmie Vaughn how to play steel guitar. This guy was a staple of the Grand Ole Opry, and a true gem of American music. This album showcases a combination of blues and Hawaiian tunes on the steel guitar, which is both relaxing and captivatingly eerie. When the snow comes heaping down, there’s just no better escape.
