Interview: Michael Spriggs.

It’s not all country pickin’ in Nashville. Michael Spriggs is an A-list session guitarist in Music City who has played on, and written, dozens of country hits. But when he goes home, he plugs in to a different sound, turning country into Ambient Americana with touches of Celtic music. He’s released several albums, including Neurasenia, which was an Echoes CD of the Month. He’s as likely to talk about Sigur Ros as Chet Atkins. Spriggs has just released a new CD called Back to 1 that continues his instrumental explorations, including a bonus CD of a long composition in the style of Steve Roach’s Structures from Silence. Michael Spriggs talks about his ambient country roads.
