Madonna is set to play in front of a world audience today, as she is the halftime entertainment during Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. Her lead guitarist, Monte Pittman, is a Longview native and will be front and center with her during the performance. His long time friend, Jamey Guida, called the Mix Studio Lines to give us a few details about Monte.

Monte grew up in Longview and has actually been her guitarist for around 20 years and has also played for Adam Lambert, too.
