Neil Young often plays with a Lap steel player, as does Bill Frisell. Lots of older country music like Waylon Jennings have Pedal Steel players. Check out Sneaky Pete Kleinow and especially Buddy Emmons and his album Steel Guitar Jazz. great stuff. Robert Randolph is more contemporary pedal steel, and he's quite good. Check this video out too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogxTQXAgY3Q it'll change your world, Santo and Johnny are awesome.

Also if you're interested, Jerry Douglas is probably the best dobro player in the world, which is basically acoustic lap steel.
