Country Artists We’ve Lost in 2012: Doug Dillard

Doug Dillard

Doug Dillard’s resume includes an impressive list of superstar names. The banjo player worked with Linda Ronstadt, Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, the Byrds and his brother as one-half of the famed Dillards. As part of that bluegrass duo, he earned fame through reoccurring appearances on ‘The Andy Griffith Show.’ The Grammy Award-winning picker also worked with the Beach Boys and the Monkees. Comedian and accomplished banjo player Steve Martin called Dillard a major influence. He died in Nashville in May 2012 at the age of 75.
