Old Memories

As far as I know, Tom Adams is the only pedal steel guitar player active on the Users Forum - and a damn good one! He has opened for, and played with, some of the country music greats over the years. Most of you probably don't know that Ronnie Fields' uncle, Gene Fields, founded GFI back in the 1960s. They quickly became one of the premiere makers of pedal steel guitars. Several of the A-list Nashville steel players used a GFI.

I, too, am a huge fan of the pedal steel.

This is the type of backing track you would have heard on country songs from early George Strait, Gene Watson, and many others in the '60s, 70s, and early 80s.

So, I put this together, hoping they might enjoy it. This is my way of saying thanks to them for their contributions to the country music industry for the past several decades. Thanks, gentlemen!

Ronnie: my youngest brother used to live just down the road from GFI. He lived in Niangua, MO. Several members of my family live in the Springfield - Branson area.
