MSA Steel Guitars Family

My Dad would never believe I would be here at MSA Steel Guitars ordering my first Steel Guitar in nearly 20 years, coming full circle to his 1977 Classic that I still enjoy.

The machining tolerances, the design work, and the passion they put in these guitars is incredible. It’s modern in the right ways, but also beautiful. I can’t wait to sit down to my own, and be inspired to create the music I want to make.

Thank you for making the time for me, Kyle!



Pieces of Dad

When I see a piece of music that Dad transcribed, I have to take a picture of it.
Thanks Gene!

My Dad was an incredible musician and teacher, and former student Gary King shared this video from his lesson in 2012. What I wouldn’t give for another lesson.

Muskingum Valley Country Music Hall of Fame

I told Jessica one morning last week that I really wished I could go to Hall of Fame day, but I didn’t think there was any way to make it happen…She made it happen, practically forced it, because she loves me. She treated going to Roger’s Auction Barn like it was more important than going to the Ryman Auditorium. That reason and so many more, are why she’s my kind of crazy.

Healing at the Ryman

Charlie’s first night at the Ryman. His little eyes were lit up seeing what I see when I play… Precious time. Time that has never meant more to me after the past few weeks. Therapeutic return in the Mother Church of Country Music. A tribute.
