    Randy Kohrs is a true Renaissance music man most world-renowned for his skills on the resonator guitar, commonly called a dobro.  As one of Nashville’s most sought-after session musicians, his handiwork can be heard on over 700 recordings, ranging from legends such as Dolly Parton, Tom T. Hall, and Hank Thompson, to newer chart-topping acts, including Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, and The Wreckers.  As a side man, he has toured with several of these artists and contributed harmony vocals, as well.
     
    Kohrs’ talents are not limited to that instrument, however, or even that category.  He plays a total of 13 different instruments – lap steel, acoustic guitar, and banjo, for example - and often shows up to sessions with several of them, giving producers plenty to choose from when sculpting songs for an artist.  That also happens to be another one of his expertise.  Kohrs is a Grammy-winning producer and recording engineer with several Grammy nominations, as well as other awards, under his belt.  His own Nashville recording facility, Slack Key Studio, is steadily rising in popularity, thanks to his vast and unique collection of rare vintage, as well as the newest, cutting-edge recording gear.
     
    Though Kohrs may be popular behind-the-scenes, as an artist in the Bluegrass/Americana world, he has topped several charts with his five solo CD’s and occasionally puts a blues band together to play in Nashville.  He is currently working on a new solo album, a rocking mix of blues and country, with much of it being his own original material.
