Jimmie Vaughan

Born March 20, 1951 in Dallas, Texas, legendary blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan would be one of the masterminds behind The Fabulous Thunderbirds and record a famous album with his younger brother, fellow blues guitar icon Stevie Ray Vaughan, before finally launching a solo career. After a series of influential albums with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and gaining a reputation as one of the finest blues guitarists in the world, Vaughan went solo for the first time with 1994’s Strange Pleasure, a collection of blues and rock that captured his signature sound. The 1998 follow-up Out There took the same approach and featured collaborations with Nile Rogers and Dr. John. He brought in jazz elements for 2001’s Do You Get the Blues?, and it still won the Grammy for Traditional Blues Album. He played live regularly for the next ten years, but didn’t release another album until 2010’s Plays Blues, Ballads & Favorites, on which he covered such songwriters as Willie Nelson, Little Richard, and Jimmy Reed. He repeated the approach for 2011’s Plays More Blues, Ballads & Favorites. For 2018’s Baby, Please Come Home, he recorded songs from Lloyd Price, Lefty Frizzell, T-Bone Walker, and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown.
