Johnny Hiland: A Guitar Man from Maine
Johnny Hiland grew up in rural Maine. Though legally blind, he quickly established himself as a guitar prodigy and began touring with the family band when he was just 8 years old.
He won competitions and moved to Nashville, where he played sessions with Ricky Scaggs, Toby Keith and Randy Travis, among others. Now he has his own self-titled solo CD, showing off his mastery of the Fender Telecaster.
