Few banjo players have impacted American music like Sonny Osborne has. The Osborne Brothers’ success includes multiple country radio hits, working with Merle Haggard, international tours, being members of the Grand Ole Opry, winning a CMA award, and induction into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame. Sonny’s banjo playing is some of the most influential in bluegrass music. In part two of this interview on Walls of Time, Sonny shares his thoughts on bluegrass and banjo playing, behind-the-scenes stories about the mighty Merle Haggard, and opens up about his struggles with addiction. Let’s re-join Daniel Mullins on Sonny Osborne’s backporch during a rainy afternoon, for the second half of our conversation with Bluegrass Hall of Famer, Sonny Osborne.
