Floyd Cramer

Biography

The very first time Floyd Cramer got to play piano on the radio, he accompanied Elvis Presley. That not only set the tone for a career as one of Nashville's best piano players, but it also led to a solid connection with Presley's producer, Chet Atkins. Together the two pioneered what has become known as the Nashville sound, a Phil Spector-esque layering of easy-on-the-ears musical elements designed to bring country music to the pop audience.
