Jimmy Day's first serious musical job was performing on the Louisiana Hayride as a sideman, on pedal steel guitar, accompanying emerging country artists: Hank Williams, Webb Pierce, Willie Nelson, Jim Reeves, Ray Price and Elvis Presley. He recorded and toured with all of them and was featured on hit records by many, including Ray Price's CRAZY ARMS and HEARTACHES BY THE HUMBER.
For a year, he was a member of Elvis Presley's band. But, along with fellow bandmate (and former junior high classmate) Floyd Cramer, resigned after Presley asked them to re-locate to Hollywood. Instead, Jimmy moved to Nashville to work as a session player and Grand Ole Opry musician.
