Musician Spotlight: Mac Gayden (by the Country Music Hall Of Fame)
February 11, 2018

Inspired by the blues and soul music he heard growing up in Nashville, innovative musician and producer Mac Gayden played guitar on and
co-wrote the 1960's R&B classics "Everlasting Love" (Robert Knight) and "She Shot A Hole In My Soul" (Clifford Curry). In the late 1960's & 70's,
Gayden co-founded and played in two influential bands from Nashville, Area Code 615 and Barefoot Jerry, before releasing a string of critically
acclaimed solo albums. He is famous for his innovative wah wah guitar style, in which he uses the pedal in conjunction with a slide to elongate
notes-as showcased on JJ Cale's "Crazy Mama" and Gayden's original "Morning Glory." He played on Bob Dylan's groundbreaking album
"Blonde On Blonde" and on recordings by Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, Charley Pride, Linda Ronstadt, and Simon & Garfunkel.
