In the kingdom of the country guitar whiz, Junior Brown was long ago knighted for his breathtaking chops. His retro style makes him the go-to guy for traditional and alternative country fans alike.
There has always been a lot to recommend Brown. He's a wickedly gifted guitarist who's mastered a number of old-school forms from honky-tonk to western swing to surf to electric blues. His baritone recalls the classic vocals of the legendary honky-tonk artist Ernest Tubb. Brown also invented the guit-steel, a double-necked hybrid instrument that combines an electric guitar with a lap steel guitar.
