It was August 16, 2022, a Tuesday night at the Opry – we were proud to be in the original Roy Acuff dressing room which is right next to the stage. That night we were unveiling our new Emmons Steel Guitar that our extraordinary steel player, Boo Miller, would be playing for the first time on the Opry (his first time at the Opry as well as the new steel guitar). The esteemed Emmons brand is now under new ownership by Darin Shiflett and Kelcey O’Neil. They continue to honor the legacy of Buddy Emmons, producing the world’s best-sounding pedal steel guitar.
One of the many wonderful things backstage at the Opry is getting to visit with other Opry members and friends we don’t see often enough. Our buddy, Jamie Dailey of the great Dailey & Vincent stopped by and we snapped this photo.
