That was Jimmy "Spider" Wilson on the guitar. I have no idea who the steel player was.

I would say Doug Jernigan since he worked with them a lot during this era. He also played dobro with them on bluegrass festivals. Besides Spider Wilson, other personel shown are Ray Kirkland, bass and Jim Buchanan. fiddle.

Doesn't look like Doug's hand stance. Not sure who it is. But will guess Hal Rugg.

Walter Haynes was also working TV shows at this time and of course TV was Spider’s main gig.

Looks like Hal Rugg to me too, just the way he holds the bar.

Doug Jernigan did work with them, as did Bob Browning on bass (Bob did a lot of singing on Jeff Newman material).

The biggest giveaway its not Doug Jernigan is,
Doug always holds his little finger and the one next to it sticking out forward on his picking hand.
Hal did play a Sho Bud during that eara and did do a lot of TV shows.

Here's Walter Haynes (to the left of Seely) playing the same Sho-Bud guitar and wearing the same shirt as in Michael Tyne's video clip. In the Seely clip - Spider is also wearing the same shirt and playing the same Blonde Epiphone Sheraton. Just sayin'

Here's some Walter Haynes. He was best known for his intro on Dickens' "We Could" cut at the Castle Studio May 2, 1955.

“A” Team - Jimmy Dean Show

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hvlf8bvIrhk

“You Better Not Do That” Little Jimmy Dickens “The Country Show”
(This performance is dubbed but you can see Walter Haynes and his Bigsby pedal steel. Emmons borrowed Walter's Bigsby to cut Jones' "Heart's In My Dreams" while his Bigsby was in the shop. Emmons said it sounded better than his)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyL6t0vy_fg

“We Could” Little Jimmy Dickens

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGbV8AEfQpQ

“Black Eyed Joe’s” Little Jimmy Dickens

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZ63K6LIrm0

“Stinky Passed the Hat Around” Little Jimmy Dickens

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxsXyML0lAg

Here's another clue...the Jim & Jesse segment is taken from a half-hour show: "Grand Ole Opry 1967"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RW90NMZoV4k&list=PLqXuYYv1P-IKzVI7SJ3SW5J3iECb3WH5N

Immediately following J&J is Stu Phillips and the camera picks up the steel player's face.



It looks like the steel guitarist that others have identified as Walter Haynes--is it?

(BTW, it looks to me like Jerry Byrd on rhythm guitar--is it?)

The house band is Jerry Byrd: leader - rhythm guitar and steel guitar / Tommy Jackson: fiddle / Jerry Whitehurst: piano / Spider Wilson: guitar / Walter Haynes: pedal steel guitar / Joe Zinkan: acoustic bass / unidentified: drummer

The announcer says Tommy Jackson is "the world's greatest hoedown fiddle player." That's a true statement.

Does anybody know who the drummer is?
