Paul Franklin moved from Detroit to Nashville in 1972 to play the pedal steel guitar with Barbara Mandrell. Later in the 70’s, he recorded and toured with Jerry Reed and Mel Tillis. In 1981, Paul decided to quit the road and focus strictly on session work in Nashville. Since then, he has been well received throughout the recording industry. You can listen to his playing behind such legendary artists as Sting, Mark Knopfler, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Shania Twain, Barbara Streisand and Megadeth for examples of Paul’s musicianship. His ability to create music outside of the country field has taken him well beyond the stereotype by which the pedal steel guitar has always been limited. Paul’s soulful playing on this uniquely voiced instrument is clearly from the heart and makes him one of the busiest session musicians in Nashville.
Brent Mason is one of the most recorded guitarists in history. As well as being a Grammy Award winning artist he is also 14 times winner of the Academy of Country Music, the CMA (being nominated every year since 1991), a NAMMIE winner and for many years has won the annual Music City Allstars Award (the musician that has played on most songs on the radio in respect of the top ten for the entire year).
