TNAG Artist Series: Carl Miner

We first met Carl back in the summer of 2019 when the wonderful Kim Sherman of TNAG Nashville introduced him to us to film our Nashville product demos, and ever since then we have been hooked!

Carl is a truly inspirational player, he writes an original piece on every (yes every) guitar demo he plays for TNAG Nashville and has this beautiful ability to read what the guitar should say before he plays it...

Carl was the winner of the National Flat Pick Guitar championships in Winfield, Kansas back in 2007 and since then has gone on to be one of Nashville's most used session players, playing on over 100 records in 2015! He has also gone on to tour touring with the likes of Taylor Swift, Fiona Apple and Mumford & Sons

We have just had a beautiful bunch of new Santa Cruz, Collings and Bourgeois guitars, as well as some of the gorgeous pre-owned instruments that have arrived at TNAG Nashville. Here are a few of Carls best records (well they are all incredible but the blog isn't long enough to fit them all in)...ENJOY!!!
