May 2, 2009 - West Virginia native Wayne Moss began his professional career playing guitar with the Echo Valley Boys on WWVA’s Wheeling Jamboree. In 1959, at age twenty-one, he moved his family to Nashville, where he became a regular on the studio scene. Among his many credits as a session guitarist are Roy Orbison’s “ Oh, Pretty Woman,” Waylon Jennings’s “Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line,” and Bob Dylan’s legendary album Blonde on Blonde. Moss also has had great success as a songwriter, a studio owner (Cinderella Sound, in continuous operation since 1960) and an artist, as founder and leader of highly regarded country-rock groups Area Code 615 and Barefoot Jerry. This in-depth interview is illustrated with photos, vintage recordings, and film footage from the museum’s Frist Library and Archive, and a brief performance by Moss.
