Description:

Born in Tyler, Texas in 1926, Johnny Gimble is one of the most influential country fiddlers of all time. Prolific as both a sideman and bandleader, Gimble appeared on hundreds of records over the course of his career and kept playing until the very end. This special album draws on his deep connection to Western Swing music, gathering an all-star cast of musicians to revisit old favorites of the genre.

Johnny became known for his sweet tone and agile ability on the fiddle after he joined the Texas Playboys in 1949, one of the most well-known Western Swing bands of his day. Just two years later, he formed his own group and began working tirelessly, touring and working as a session musician for such major names as Marty Robbins, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Connie Smith, Loretta Lynn and Chet Atkins.

During this period of extensive work, Gimble became friend and collaborator of a slew of top tier musicians. For Still Swingin’ (his first of several albums for CMH), Johnny put together a supergroup of these musicians, pulling from artists that inspired him to play in the first place. Together with members of The Light Crust Doughboys, Milton Brown & His Musical Brownies, the Texas Wanderers, and Sons of the South, Gimble revisits a generous and well-curated collection of classics and old favorites of the Western Swing genre.

Setting studio recordings alongside engaging live performances (delivered to a KRLD radio audience in Dallas, TX), this album is a warm and entertaining listen from start to finish. Top-tier musicianship, a lovingly selected setlist and lively production make this a classic retrospective of the Western Swing genre.

Now available digitally for the first time, you can revisit this 1980 CMH classic wherever you listen.
