Upwards of 20 years ago, Saturday Night Live, aired a now classic skit featuring Will Farrell and Christopher Walken. It was titled “More Cowbell”.
I have mentioned on several occasions how I miss a crying steel guitar in Southern Gospel music. It was a part of the Southern Gospel sound during the 1970s and into the mid 1980s. As live bands became a thing of the past, so did the steel guitar.
I had an opportunity to see Goodman Revival several weeks ago in concert. They traveled with a full band, including a steel guitar player. It added that extra punch needed to drive home the classic Goodman sound.
So, on occasion, I am going to offer a Southern Gospel song that features a crying steel guitar. More crying steel guitar!!
