I haven't seen Junior Brown live, but mercy, the below is undeniable. Notable things about Junior Brown:

1) He plays a "guit-steel."

2) He taught at the Hank Thompson School of Country Music at Claremore Junior College in Claremore, Oklahoma, hometown of Bob Wills.

3) That's his wife playing rhythm guitar and wearing a business suit.

4) "My Wife Thinks You're Dead" is one of the greatest country songs ever written (I'm also partial to "Highway Patrol").

5) He plays FitzGerald's tomorrow at 8pm.

Below the jump, he lights up "Sugar Foot Rag":
