God makes no mistakes when he endows his creations with gifts, and that is evident with the great musician Gregg Haynes. Born and raised in St. Louis Mo., Haynes is one of the most gifted guitarists of his time.
Gregg began to live out his passion for music at the age of 10. His parents could not afford guitar lessons for him so his mother laid hands on him with blessed oil, and prayed that God would anoint him to play. He would go on to perfect his craft by playing guitar at his father’s church for the next few years.
Gregg received the nickname “Happy Guitar” because of the joy and happiness that is felt in the heart of people every time he plays his guitar. Haynes has shared his musical brilliance with audiences for over 30 years. Gregg has toured and recorded with many artists including The O’Neal Twins, BeBe & CeCe Winans, and Edwin Hawkins.
Haynes would go on to become a music director and band organizer. Gregg has won many awards including the Dr. Bobby Jones Unsigned Artist Award in Nashville, Tennessee. a Mayoral Proclamation as “Guitarist of the Year”, Best Gospel Instrumental CD (Live & Direct), and an Honorary Citizenship Award from the Country of Ukraine, Europe. He was the guitarist in the award-winning documentary film, “Say Amen, Somebody” featuring Dr. Thomas A. Dorsey.
He released his book titled ‘The Story Behind The Glory in 2019’
