The Country Music Association recently staged its annual four-day festival in Nashville, an event which attracted many big names including Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney and Reba McEntire.

According to Gibson, many of the stars and celebrities were playing Gibson and Epiphone electric guitars.

Indeed, the manufacturer said the brands could be seen "just about everywhere you looked" and accounted for nearly every guitar on stage throughout the event.

"Gibsons and Epiphones were everywhere all week long," it commented.

"And we're proud of it."

The Oak Ridge Boys, Gretchen Wilson and Montgomery Gentry were among the acts playing the electric guitars, along with Razzy Bailey, John Rich and Jack Ingram.

This comes shortly after Allen Madding of Insider Racing credited Gibson electric guitars with helping to steer the development of popular music in the post-war era.
