Does G.B. Grayson get the credit that he deserves for his contributions to country and bluegrass music?
The answer is a resounding “NO!”
His tragic death so early in his recording career has a lot to do with that fact. His not playing and recording at the famous “Bristol Sessions” probably also has something to do with that as well.
And yet….G. B.’s music is played every day on stages all over the world. The unfortunate thing, however, is that the people playing it don’t even realize that G.B. Grayson was the very FIRST person to write and/or record the very song that they are playing.
In this outtake from “A Short Life of Trouble”, G.B. Grayson’s grandson, Randy Meadows, discusses his thoughts on the recognition that he believes his Grandfather is due.
