Russ is currently on tour with Dan Auerbach (from The Black Keys). His first touring gig was with Dickie Betts, and he’s also played with Robert Plant, Elton John, Vince Gill, Blake Shelton, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Don Henley, and more… He has been a First-Call session player in Nashville for over 30 years, in both electric guitar AND steel guitar, which is a rarity….

Some GREAT stories in here about how Russ got connected with Dickie Betts & Robert Plant… why Elton John is “the hardest working man he’s ever worked with”... the incredibly unlikely way he got into playing steel guitar… why he’s been so busy for the last 35 years, and much more...
