Country music has come a long way since Ernest Tubb's "Walking the Floor Over You," featuring Fay "Smitty" Smith (staff guitarist at Dallas radio station KGKO) on electric guitar, became a hit in 1941. At that time, amplified guitars were not allowed at the famed Grand Ole Opry, but Nashville's conservative powers that be recognized commercial potential when they heard it, and so lifted that antiquated ban in 1943. And when the Francis Craig Orchestra likewise passed that magic million mark with "Near You," in 1947, Nashville's modem era commenced.

The guitar has always the backbone of country music, even when it was used mainly to provide rhythm for fiddlers. But with the emergence in the late 1940s of Merle Travis and Chet Atkins-electric country guitar's foremost pioneers-the instrument was suddenly elevated to a new iconic status. In the early 1950s, pickers such as Jimmy Bryant, Joe Maphis, James Burton, and Hank Garland, all of who were blessed with amazing chops, far outpaced blues and many jazz musicians. And while that esteemed group was clean and fast, each successive generation of players, from Jerry Reed and Albert Lee to Jerry Donahue, Danny Gatton, and Brent Mason, among others, were often even cleaner and faster.

Concomitantly, rock 'n' roll and rockabilly gained footing, and over time infiltrated the somewhat staid Nashville culture. This cultural phenomenon most significantly expanded country music's instrumental parameters, manifesting itself not only in longer and more aggressive distorted guitar solos, but also in more powerful chord progressions extending beyond the genre's typical I-IV-V changes and 2/4 time signatures. By the 1980s, country music made the leap from honky tonks and the Opry to arenas and stadiums, starring blackhatted "cowboys" with sharp-shooting lead guitarists. Purists may have been given pause, but the effect has been one to give country music heretofore undreamed of popularity among a younger demographic while providing a smooth test track for Nashville cats to bum the windings off their strings.
