Greg Blaylock joins Josh Williams Band

The Josh Willisams Band - photo by Phil BurtA recent post on lists Greg Blaylock as the newest member of the band. Blaylock is a young resophonic guitar player I got in touch with Josh as asked him about Greg. He tells me Greg joined the band after filling in during a sold out show at the Station Inn in mid-July.

Josh expressed his excitement about the newest member of his band.

I have known Greg Blaylock for several years, since the time we met in my pre-teen years while playing the contest circuit throughout the south. I have always liked the way Greg played, and thought he was the best of all the young Dobro players in those days. After the night Greg filled in with us while Clayton was on tour with the Gibson Brothers, the band and I loved the way his playing fit our style so much that I invited him to become a full-time member, and was delighted when he accepted the position. I think he has become, and will continue to be a real asset to the Josh Williams Band. I’m especially glad he decided to play  with us in time to be with us at all our IBMA appearances.

If you will be attending the IBMA events later this month, be sure to catch on of the performances from this great young band.
