Comments
Influential steel guitarist, one of the architects of the 'Bakersfield sound' of country music, a louder, more rhythmically propulsive version of the music coming out of Nashville in the '50s. Mooney's crisp, melodically rich and rhythmically buoyant sound bolstered dozens of country music hits by artists including Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Wynn Stewart and Wanda Jackson.
