About Us  











                                                              Bob Callaway
      Bob was born in1940 at 3rd and Southern Parkway in Louisville Kentucky.
He decided, at the tender age of 10 or 11, he loved the sound of the steel guitar. He learned to play on a converted acoustic guitar, doesn’t that sound familiar, which was all that was available at the time. His mom got him his first electric steel guitar, a 6 string National. His Aunt and Uncle then bought him a blond D8 Fender steel guitar when he was 13. He took lessons and played in bands like “The Bunk House Boys”, and in numerous contests winning several ribbons for his first love, music and the steel guitar.

      He married and took a hiatus from music to help raise a family. He has been married 32 years, to the love of his life, Barbara and they have 6 children between them.

      He started playing the steel guitar again and bought a used Sho-Bud pedal steel, but being pre wore-out, didn’t keep it long, then got a Derby pedal steel, (serial number 8) from Charlie Stepp. And for whom he started working after retiring from Philip Morris Inc. He is still working at Derby, playing steel and loving every minute of it all. And has become very good friends with many steel guitar pickers such as Don Helms, Lynn Owsley, “Little” Roy Wiggins, Billy Robinson, Ron Elliott, Dale Wagner, Charlie Stepp, and the list goes on and on.
       He is the president of the Louisville Metro Steel Guitar Club in Kentucky. And member of other clubs like Nashville Tennessee Steel Guitar Assoc. 
Pedal Steel Guitar Assoc. in New York, Alabama Steel Guitar Assoc. 
and Ozark Steel Guitar Assoc. in Missouri. And a  Kentucky Colonel from 1992.
