Mike Headrick is a renowned musician, songwriter, and producer of REAL country music. He has played with a long list of top artists, but for the past three decades has chosen to record and produce. Mike plays several instruments but in recent years he has become known as one of the world's top pedal steel players. Whether it's Nashville country, Bakersfield country, or California country rock, Mike knows the music inside and out and his instrumentals are authentic in whatever genre he plays in. Ralph Mooney's legacy goes before him. He was the nucleus of the Bakersfield sound. His style which has become known as the West Coast Style is still Imulated on today's recordings. As far as Haggard goes, Mooney was on all Hag's early records and many of his early hits such as 'The Bottle Let Me Downs' and 'Swinging Doors'. These steel guitar Intros and instrumental turnarounds are the reason that Waylon Jennings would later intorduce Ralph and say 'Moon, show 'em the foot that made Merle Haggard famous.'
