Tommy Dodd

Tommy has been playing the pedal steel guitar and dobro for many years. He has contributed his talents to the recordings of such icons as Travis Tritt and Doug Stone. He has also played with The Supremes, as well as an impressive array of country giants at the 1994 Super Bowl Halftime show featuring Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, and The Judds. In 1992, Tommy played the role of a musician in “When the Music Stopped,” a season-6 episode of “In the Heat of the Night” with Carroll O’Connor and Robert Goulet. However, he says his greatest claim to fame came early in 1972 while playing with JD Sumner and the Stamps, when he actually shared the stage with Elvis Presley. Working full-time now as a studio musician, Tommy plays frequently with local bands in Georgia and with artists from all around the Southeast. In addition to traditional and new-country music, he thoroughly enjoys presenting the steel guitar in non-traditional genres of music and has had great acceptance performing with zydeco, funk, blues, Southern rock, and contemporary Christian bands in the area.
