Man, if you don't know the name Junior Brown by now, lemme just run this by you: The Jimi Hendrix of Country. Yes.
Now, I mean no disrespect in the least to all-time greats like Chet Atkins or James Burton or any of the 1,352 guitar pickers in Nashville, but Brown is not only an innovative, incredibly versatile badass on the guitar: In addition to the fret-board fireworks, he also writes great songs and sings them in a baritone that's as deep and clear as a country well.
Brown plays a hybrid double-neck guitar called the "guit-steel," named for its combination of standard six-string and lap steel in one convenient package. And he shreds on both of them.
A few years back, I was talking to an acquaintance who's a huge music buff and also a gifted guitar player about the best concerts we'd seen. I'd never known him to dig country at all, but he said that hands-down the best concert he'd ever seen was Junior Brown. He didn't hesitate or qualify the statement or get down to genre specifics or anything: "What's the best show you ever saw?" "Junior Brown." Just like that.
