One of the toughest jobs in the music business is being a touring musician. You have to be a great musician, but content with being second fiddle to the star. You've got to be willing to play the same tunes night after night, get along with your mates in cramped quarters and be away from home many months of the year. All this for low pay and in the case of most Nashville musicians, they didn't even get to play on their star's albums. So it was fitting that in the late '60s & '70s they at least got a chance to make their own albums, which usually feature some hot picking. The band's names were derived from the star's name or from their hit record or the place they came from.
