Steel Guitar Album By
Submitted by SGWM Staff Writer.-
The cover-photo that accompanies John's new CD displays a handsome photograph of John Hughey (taken by Skip Jackson of Downtown Photo,) sitting behind one of his new Emmons Lashley LeGrande III steel guitars. The cover photo is a real keepsake in itself!
For years as a fan of Conway Twitty, I remember looking forward
to his every release just to hear the
crying steel guitar sounds of John Hughey that would literally send chills down my spine, and I'm sure that many of you can relate to this as well. After the untimely death of Conway, John was offered an opportunity to sign on with Vince Gill, and quite frankly, I don't think a better match could have been made, and I believe that this was indeed a real God-send... not only for Vince Gill, but also for the many thousands of us steel players who are fans of both, Vince Gill and John Hughey.
As a personal friend of John Hughey for over two decades, I can honestly contend that this is a man of great honor, compassion, and of unique talent that just about all of us have long tried to duplicate. Much like Buddy Emmons, John Hughey has become an internationally spoken "household name" among steel players, and is renowned for his skill and unique style.
John Hughey's new CD is without question, a masterpiece of pedal steel guitar artistry and is a "must have" for any collection. Of the many steel guitar recordings available this new CD will undoubtedly become one of your most cherished.
John's new recording is available on CD for $15.00, cassettes are also available for $12.00. John tells me the rhythm tracks are also available on CD for $12.00 or the rhythm tracks can be purchased on cassette for $10.00 each. Be sure to add $2.50 each for shipping and handling payable to:
John Hughey Music - PO Box 971 - Hendersonville, TN 37077-0971.
John says a very special thank you to all of his many dedicated fans and I think I speak for all of us when I say... God Bless you John Hughey and thank you for producing an album for us steel players who look up to you with the highest of honors.
