It’s not all country picking in Nashville. Michael Spriggs is an A-list session guitarist in Music City who has played on, and written, dozens of country hits.

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.
