Read or listen to this nice NPR feature by WPLN's Craig Havighurst on Kenny Vaughan, Fabulous Superlative. His veteran guitar-slingin' status combined with his youthful appearance have prompted some to wonder whether Vaughan's got a magic painting in the attic. (Note to our Creamy rock-centric readers: this is a literary reference.)

Last fall, the Americana Music Association named guitarist Kenny Vaughan instrumentalist of the year. For those who follow roots country and modern folk rock in Nashville, the honor came as little surprise. Through his work with recording artists such as Lucinda Williams, Rodney Crowell and others, Vaughan became a sought after sidemen. Now, he's a full-time member of Marty Stuart's band, adding to his resume of Fabulous Superlatives.
