Product Description

Doyle Dykes is one of the premier fingerstyle guitarists in the world. When guitar great Chet Atkins was asked a few years ago who he'd pay money to go see, his answer was, "People like Doyle Dykes, who is just an amazing fingerpicker, I think." He has thrilled secular and church audiences all over the world, from the Grand Ole Opry to Knebworth House in Hertfordshire, England (home of the some of the most famous rock concerts in history) to Shanghai, China; James' Burton's International Guitar Festival, Saddleback Community Church, and Harvest Christian Fellowship.

But this book isn't just about his life as a guitar player. Infused into stories like how he was invited to be part of the Stamps Quartet (Elvis' backup band), why a white rose is on the headstock of his signature-model guitar, and how his worst night at the Opry turned out to be anything but, are accounts of the remarkable ways God has shown up in Doyle's life. His warm, engaging style will draw you into each chapter--and you'll finish the book having been inspired, feeling like Doyle is a new friend, and never viewing God the same way again. Includes DVD with music & interviews.


"Doyle Dykes has reached the outer limits of guitar theory and performance.  In "he Lights of Marfa he reveals an even more superior attainment.  Through his inspiring life experiences he has learned the true meaning of things that really matter.  Things like family, prayer, the Bible and serving the King of Kings.  This is a worth reading book.  I know, because I've read it."  R. Lamar Vest, President & CEO, American Bible Society

"Master of His Craft" - "Christian Gentleman" - "Loyal Friend" These are just a few of the attributes I have witnessed in my friend "Doyle Dykes." I have been priviledged to share in an extended portion of Doyles life and consider it an honor to be able to call him "My Friend."  You will be both enlightened and encouraged by the accounts contained in the volume you now hold in your hand. Enjoy it! --Dr. Donnie Sumner
