June 16, 2012 - North Carolina native Jimmy Capps has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry Band since 1967. The guitarist got his big break, professionally, when the Louvin Brothers hired him in 1958 and brought him to Nashville. Capps has since played on countless TV shows, including The Wilburn Brothers Show, The Statler Brothers Show, and the CMA Awards show. He has also distinguished himself in the studio, gracing a long list of country classics including “He Stopped Loving Her Today” (George Jones), “The Gambler” (Kenny Rogers), and “Here in the Real World” (Alan Jackson). Capps is a regular on cable channel RFD-TV’s Larry’s Country Diner, where he plays the sheriff. This interview and performance is illustrated with vintage photographs, film footage, and recordings.
