Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the greatest Dobro player of all?
Faced with that query, most magic mirrors would probably respond by saying that Jerry Douglas has been, and is, the premier Dobro player of our time.
And who could argue?
As the featured soloist for the multi-Platinum, multi-Grammy, multi-(pick an award) Alison Krauss and Union Station, Jerry Douglas has consistently raised the bar for what passes as virtuosity on that instrument. Douglas has also ventured from his “Allison Wonderland” from time to time to tour and record with a deep and stunning Who’s Who of élite musical acts, solo performers, and singer/songwriters. Furthermore, his personal list of awards from the music industry could make the much decorated Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps blush from feelings of inadequacy.
