It Was a Trip, On Wings of Music

by Jerry Byrd
A fixture on the country scene, Jerry Byrd was a session player in Nashville in the mid-1940s and was influential in the development of the "Nashville Sound." Drawn to the music of Hawaiian steel guitarists, he went on to develop a style and invent tunings that would become synonymous with the instrument. In 1972, Byrd headed for Hawaii, only to discover that the islands had turned their back on the instrument that gave them their signature sound. Thus, Byrd's mission became to reacquaint Hawaii with its own creation. His inspiration not only bridged country and Hawaiian music, but also secured the steel guitar's place in the 21st century.
