About this Artist
In addition to being widely known as the foremost master of the dobro, JERRY DOUGLAS is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording artist whose output incorporates elements of bluegrass, country, rock, jazz, blues, and Celtic styles into his distinctive musical vision.
Called “dobro’s matchless contemporary master,” by The New York Times, twelve-time Grammy-winner Douglas is one of the most innovative recording artists in music, both as a solo artist and member of groundbreaking bands such as J.D. Crowe & the New South, the Country Gentlemen, Boone Creek, and Strength In Numbers. Douglas’ distinctive sound graces more than 1500 albums. Since 1998, he’s been a key member of Alison Krauss and Union Station, touring extensively and co-producing and playing on a series of platinum albums.
The restless creative spirit that is the common thread in his eclectic discography is prominent through every moment of his most recent solo releases, Glide and his first-ever holiday album, Jerry Christmas!
