Publisher's Summary

Doyle Dykes is one of the premier fingerstyle guitarists in the world. When guitar-great Chet Atkins was asked a few years ago who he'd pay money to go see, his answer was, "people like Doyle Dykes, who is just an amazing fingerpicker, I think." He has thrilled secular and church audiences all over the world, from the Grand Ole Opry, to Knebworth House in Hertfordshire, England (home of the some of the most famous rock concerts in history) to Shanghai, China; James' Burton's International Guitar Festival, Saddleback Community Church, and Harvest Christian Fellowship.

But this book isn't just about his life as a guitar player. Infused into stories like how he was invited to be part of the Stamps Quartet (Elvis' backup band), why a white rose is on the headstock of his signature-model guitar, and how his worst night at the Opry turned out to be anything but, are accounts of the remarkable ways God has shown up in Doyle's life. His warm, engaging style will draw you into each chapter - and you'll finish the book having been inspired, feeling like Doyle is a new friend, and never viewing God the same way again.

    "Doyle writes and narrates with passion!"

    Crazy name for a wonderful story of Doyle's life.
    Hearing the author as narrator brings the emphasis, humor, and passion where it is intended.
    Highly recommended.
