'I played steel guitar with Redd for over eight years in Pee Wee King's band, starting in 1946 at the Grand Ole Opry and continuing through 1954 on WAVE-TV in Louisville, KY. I left the business as a profession for 42 years and recently retired, resuming music as a hobby.
To me, Redd was the glue that held the Golden West Cowboys together into a tight musical unit. Redd was a great musician and songwriter, and above all, was a friend and gentleman. (Roy Ayres - former steel guitar player of Pee Wee King's Golden West Cowboys)
