About Brent Mason
The hardest working man in the music business, Mr.Nashville Session Musician Himself, Brent Mason is one of the most in-demand guitarists in Country Music. The multiple times Country Guitarist of the Year Award winner has been a game changer for a long time and he’ll remain one for even longer!
Growing up in a musical family, Mason had the perfect starting point growing up. Displaying his astonishing talent, the natural born guitarist taught himself to play the guitar at the age of 5 and he hasn’t looked back ever since! After graduating from high school in 1977 Mason took the Country capital of the world Nashville with storm, where early gigs included a stint with the Don Kelley Band – a band that has since become an incubator for great Nashville musicians like John Hiland, Guthrie Trapp, JD Simo, and most recently Daniel Donato.
Multiple Grammy award winner, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Chet Atkins, then discovered Mason and invited him to play on his Stay Tuned album that included other guitar giants like Mark Knofler, George Benson, Earl Klugh, and many more. From there on Mason was unstoppable appearing on well over a thousand other artist albums including those of George Strait, Alan Jackson, Shania Twain, Scotty McCreary, Blake Sheldon and Neil Diamond.
In 1997 he released his only major-label album Hot Wired, which earned him a Grammy nomination. In 2006 Mason and his brother released a second album, entitled Smokin’ Section. The hard work paid off in 2009 where he won a Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental alongside other guitarist for the track “Cluster Pluck” from Brad Paisley’s album Play. In 2011 Brent Mason was rightfully inducted into the National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame!
Mason continues to create his magic as a studio musician and he is sharing some of his magic tricks as he has made a series of guitar lessons on JamPlay for aspiring guitarist.
