KEVIN SMITH - WILLIE NELSON
Polished Stainless Steel Round Core Bass Strings
Kevin Smith has performed and recorded with many of the best-known and influential artists in the last two decades of American roots music. Since making a mark in the ’90s with High Noon, perhaps the best rockabilly band since the ’50s, Smith developed a reputation as an outstanding swing bassist and slap-bass specialist, and he went on to play with Dwight Yoakam, Brian Setzer, and the Asylum Street Spankers. But one gig, looming large over the Lone Star State’s musical landscape, is with a true living legend: Willie Nelson. Smith has been doubling on upright and electric since Willie’s long-time bass player, “Bee” Spears, died unexpectedly in 2011.
