Steel Guitar Bands/Songs

I've always liked the sound of a Steel Guitar, more specifically a pedal steel.

Anybody know of any good bands or songs that have a Steel Guitar? Could be old or new and any genre.. Post'em if you do.

Here's a band I saw in concert earlier this year, they were good live. It was cool to hear a band live with a pedal steel for a change.
From Athens GA.

Here ya go - this pretty much closes the envelope. It's a steel guitar, just not a pedal steel...

Thanks for the post, and reminding me to specify pedal steel. I like both, but the pedal steel just has a certain melodic draw to it.

I wondered...in that case here's my favorite pedal steel player.

Crappy video but good sound. Not a lot of people realize that he plays steel on "Teach Your Children" - probably one of the most famous recordings ever made on the instrument.

Flying Burrito Brothers Sneaky Pete Kleinow's pedal steel was sorta the main instrument.

Never heard of Flying Burrito Brothers lol, that was a strange era.

Yeah Junior Brown is an awesome player, he actually came up with that guitar and had a guy start building them for him, he calls it the "Guit Steel". I saw him player years ago at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels Texas ( TX oldest dance hall, cool place). He was tearing it up.

Gram Parsons of Burrito's is widely considered the father of country/rock, going back to the International Submarine Band in '67, then dominating the '68 Byrds - Sweethearts of the Rodeo. Google Sneaky Pete Kleinow for lots more pedal steel.

J.P Harris-Got the trucker song feel, I like trucking tunes, good for truckin.

Robert Randolph one- Kind of speed funk, not bad.
