Buddy Emmons, The Pedal-Steel Guitarist, Has Died

Country music wouldn't sound like itself without the pedal-steel guitar, and the instrument sounds the way it does today because of Buddy Emmons, who died Wednesday in Nashville at 78. Though he might not be a household name, Emmons played on records for everyone from Ray Price to Ray Charles, and from George Strait to Judy Collins. #FullNewsAudioAvailable #NPR
