Bradley will be interviewed on Aug. 19 as part of the museum’s series, Nashville Cats: A Celebration of Music City Session Players. The younger brother of Country Music Hall of Fame member Owen Bradley, his session work ranges from Red Foley’s “Chattanoogie Shoe Shine Boy” to Alan Jackson’s “Here in the Real World” and other sessions with Buddy Holly, Brenda Lee, Henry Mancini, Webb Pierce, Elvis Presley, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams and many others.
