Music History-Russell Davis

John Edelhauser had a dear friend who lived near Winston Wagner’s antenna field. His name was Russell Davis. In those years Boyd would spend a lot of time at Russell’s home learning about the various instruments Russell could play. One day Russell put a ukulele in Boyd’s hand and showed him three simple chords on the ukulele.
Russell would play the violin and try to tell Boyd what chords to make. Eventually Boyd traveled to Paris with John Edelhauser and would perform on his ukulele for folks at the C.B coffee breaks held in Paris.  Russell could play many instruments including the wash tub bass and the banjo. Boyd learned about music in those days than he ever did in Nashville.
