Can anyone point me to good slide guitar tracks on more recent recordings? I know that I've heard slide guitar on the radio on some of the more recent country/rock, or "bro country" recordings, but I don't recall on which particular ones. I tried the Google but it wasn't really very helpful. It kept producing links to pedal steel instead.

I like what Harry Manx and Kevin Breit are doing together - Harry does an Indian influenced slide he calls Mysticssippi and Kevin does all the outside stuff as well as some fun ukulele in ways you wouldn't expect. I love this whole album!



They have a fairly deep catalogue, so check out their other stuff too.

What do you consider "recent"? In the blues world you can still be touring on your "new record" from 5 years ago.
Any particular genre?
There's Mike Henderson's latest:

The Bro’s Landreth. Both Joey Landreth snd Ariel Pozen are superb slide guitarists.
I was going to post this. Ariel seems to have recently emerged but I'm sure he's been at it a long time.

As far as I know, Derek Trucks and his wife, Susan Tedeschi are still making music. Snarky Puppy has a few tunes with Mark Lettieri playing slide.

Big Wreck's Ian Thornley plays a lot of slide on their albums (as well as his solo releases) but not featured in a "Hey look, I'm playing slide now!" way. He has mad skills though.

There is pretty killer slide (by Jason) all over the great Jason Isbell records.

Isbell is a great slide player, he keeps it pretty understated on the records, but his phrasing and tone are killer and always fit the song so well.
