The tour will kick off June 14 in Rhode Island and will carry on throughout the U.S and Canada into the fall before heading to the UK in October. If the Fabulous Superlatives are coming to your town, don't miss one of the best country & western outfits in the world. And when they say "Superlative," they mean it! Read our classic interview with Mr. Scruggs
and watch him take the Masterbilt Century Collection
through its paces.
"I'm having more fun doing studio work now than I've had in years," Scruggs told Epiphone.com, "and I think a lot of that is strangely enough the more new people that come here and the less of the burden of the old dinosaur model of the record industry has a say, the more people are free to do what they want to do. Just last week, I was playing steel on a Casey Musgrave session and they had Joe Spivey and Larry Franklin and Kenny Sears from the Time Jumpers playing triple fiddle and I got to play 8-string lap steel like Jerry Byrd all day. And I was thinking this would never have happened 10 years ago with a hot young country artist. But nowadays there's a little more room to stretch out."
