TOMMY EMMANUEL- ENDLESS ROAD
Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring regional Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins. Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year from Nashville to Sydney to London.
Endless Road is one of Tommy Emmanuel’s most popular albums among his fanbase. It contains classic Emmanuel originals such as “Tall Fiddler”, “Endless Road”, and one of the most popular songs in his repertoire - “Angelina”. The song “Angelina” has almost 9 millions streams on Spotify and almost 7.5 million views on Youtube. The album highlights Emmanuel’s abilities as a composer and player, but it also shows his amazing ability to re-arrange classic songs like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “Windy & Warm”. The album features plenty of musical nodes to his heroes like Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, and Jerry Reed.
