Musician Spotlight | Mac Gayden

Inspired by the blues and soul music he heard growing up in Nashville, innovative musician and producer Mac Gayden played guitar on and co-wrote the 1960s R&B classics “Everlasting Love” (Robert Knight) and “She Shot a Hole in My Soul” (Clifford Curry). In the late 1960s and ’70s, Gayden co-founded and played in two influential bands from Nashville, Area Code 615 and Barefoot Jerry, before releasing a string of critically acclaimed solo albums. He is famous for his innovative wah-wah guitar style, in which he uses the pedal in conjunction with a slide to elongate notes—as showcased on J.J. Cale’s “Crazy Mama” and Gayden’s original “Morning Glory.” He played on Bob Dylan’s groundbreaking album Blonde on Blonde and on recordings by Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, Charley Pride, Linda Ronstadt, and Simon & Garfunkel. Presented in support of the exhibit Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City.
