Amen to Tommy Emmanuel!
Doyle Dykes & Caleb Dykes - I met Doyle Dykes after a show he'd done at a local music store back in 2011. Besides being an excellent guitarist, Doyle is a gentleman of the first order!
I also saw/heard/met Doyle at a local music store/venue in Henderson, NV at probably about the same time. He had one of his daughters with him, who was an excellent singer/songwriter. Son Caleb can certainly hold his own with his father. I learned a guitar composition of Doyle's (I've since forgotten it, though) which was melodic and challenging, but attainable. He is one of three or four guitarists whose abilities I admire, beyond the usual Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed references. I place Doyle Dykes in the top five, with Tommy Emmanuel at the top.
