JERRY DOUGLAS Traveler bio

“I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m not afraid to try anything,” states Jerry Douglas. “That’s what this record’s about.”

That fearlessness is manifested in spades on Traveler, the artist’s 14th solo release and his first in three years. The 11-song album finds the world-renowned Dobro master—described as “the Muhammad Ali of the Dobro” by James Taylor and “my favorite musician” by John Fogerty—defying expectations and ignoring genre restrictions to deliver his most stylistically expansive, personally-charged effort to date.

Recorded in New Orleans, New York, Montreal and Banbury, England as well as in Douglas’ homebase of Nashville, Traveler finds the 13-time Grammy winner and three-time Country Music Association Musician of the Year delivering an audaciously eclectic set that teams him with such world-class talents (and avowed Douglas admirers) as Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons, Keb’ Mo’, Marc Cohn, Dr.

    Jerry is my Man He says about my other Hero: Slide Master Sonny Landreth: "I think that the reason he sounds so different is 'cause of where he's from. I can hear fiddles a lot in his playing, just from the way he raises the notes. Slide is just another voice you can have. You can really make a guitar sound like a person, and Sonny Landreth knows what that's about."
