Michael Hedges has appeared on the cover of every major guitar magazine, winning Guitar Player’s readers’ poll award for “best acoustic guitarist” five years running—and was subsequently named by the magazine as one of the “25 Guitarists Who Shook the World”.
This is Jim Nay’s award-winning 1998 video of my brother Don Record’s musical tribute to his friend, the late Michael Hedges, “You Were Always There”. Donnie and Michael grew up together in Enid, Oklahoma. Jim Nay is also from Enid. We all miss Michael and frequently remember him fondly and with great appreciation for the beauty and amazing prowess he brought to musical composition and performance.
