Roy Huskey, Jr.

Son of famed Nashville session player Junior Huskey (he had played on The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s legendary Will the Circle Be Unbroken album in the early seventies), Roy was, at the time of his untimely death, widely considered Nashville’s premier acoustic bassist. He was in constant demand for all kinds of acoustic music, ranging from bluegrass to the “unplugged” work of Steve Earle. He was a member of Emmylou Harris’ hot acoustic band, The Nash Ramblers. The impact of his early demise on the acoustic music community was deeply felt.  At the time, Marty Stuart said that he was “a pure, original, state-of-the-art, bona fide, textbook example of a bass-playing genius, truly irreplaceable.”
