Country music is changing. So is the instrument that plays a key role in solidifying its entire sound—the pedal steel guitar. Their marriage is still intact; however, it’s now an open one. An increasingly diverse group of musicians have taken interest in the oblong, floor-mounted electrified guitar fretted with a steel bar, putting the instrument in the ears of many indie, ambient, and experimental fans for the first time. Pioneered by Buddy Emmons and Jimmy Day, the quintessential honky-tonk sound of the ’60s

Originally developed for playing Hawaiian music, the steel guitar was integrated into the sacred music of two branches of the House of God, an African-American Holiness Pentecostal church in the late 1930s. This collection is drawn from sacred music recorded between 1993 and 1997 and is divided into instrumentals/concerts and live religious services. The liner notes provide a brief history of the steel guitar and its sacred music traditions. Source:
