Without question, Don Helms is one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and beyond. The sound of his steel guitar is as much a part of our atmosphere as the wind, trains, or church bells.
The intros to Hank Williams' your Cheatin' Heart and Patsy Cline's Walking' After Midnight are but two of the timeless passages provided by Helms as offerings to the American musical landscape.
Don Helms legacy will not only be as one of the founding fathers of Country Music, but also as one of the truest gentlemen to ever walk the face of the earth. He is a master in every sense of the word.
