Shot Jackson:

Sho-Bud was one of the leaders in the development and manufacturing of pedal steel guitars, from the late 1950's through the 80's. As both an instrument designer and as an instrumentalist, Jackson "helped pioneer the popularity in country music of the pedal steel guitar and its acoustic alternative, the Dobro". He played the dobro regularly on the Grand Ol' Opry, and recorded with country music artists such as the Bailes Brothers, Kitty Wells, Johnnie & Jack, Webb Pierce, Roy Acuff's Smoky Mountain Boys, and Melba Montgomery. He also recorded his own solo albums on then-Pacemaker Records. The steel guitar Hall of Famer's handcrafted signature black 'ShoBro' was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on July 23rd, 1999.
