The influential steel guitarist played with Buck Owens, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. He was one of the architects of the "Bakersfield sound" of country music, a louder, more rhythmically propulsive version of the music coming out of Nashville in the '50s. He co-wrote the hit "Crazy Arms," which became a No. 1 hit in 1956. He was 82. Full obituary Notable deaths of 2010 Michael Manning
