As a 2004 National Heritage Fellow (America's highest honor for traditional artists) and 13-time Grammy winner, Jerry Douglas has, frankly, re-invented his instrument, playing the dobro with unprecedented speed and haunting lyricism. Starting as a teen, Douglas performed with J.D. Crowe, Emmylou Harris, the Country Gentlemen, Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello and James Taylor, all while working as one of Nashville's most in-demand session players. Douglas is a longtime featured member of Alison Krauss & Union Station.
