A Touch of Pedal Steel

I've started a new playlist for lovers of Pedal Steel in Americana music. Pedal Steel is that one sound that is SO distict and really tugs at those heart strings for many people.
 
Some Pedal Steel players do not like this type of playing as its very basic, like a drummer would prefer heavy metal because its more interesting for the player. I like to think of this playlist as "A Touch of Pedal Steel" in each song, it compliments folk songs perfectly.
 
I've put together a playlist of which I will update frequently, which has well known to unsigned and undiscovered artists in there. 
 
Please follow and share amongst people you think will love this playlist.

Thanks for sharing! I like the theme of the playlist. Original theme, pedal steel. Good content, if you like country and americana. A suggestion for the list would be Sparklehorse, i thought they used pedal steel in their songs.

Cool, I love the pedal steel sound!

 

Check out Robert Randolph because he's the hottest pedal steel player right now — https://open.spotify.com/artist/4xac3zhHlBm5QDxbZeqgeR.

 

His performance with The Word is even better, https://open.spotify.com/artist/3Xc64ZFy9N8shtm2wsLXQW

 

Another guy to check out on YouTube (https://youtu.be/cIF1D3WnWII) is Roosevelt Collier, but he doesn't have stuff in Spotify.
