Chet Atkins

  • Chester Burton "Chet" Atkins, född 20 juni 1924 i Luttrell, Tennessee, död 30 juni 2001 i Nashville, Tennessee, var en amerikansk gitarrist och skivproducent. Förutom en solokarriär, som inleddes redan 1942, började han under tiden på RCA Victor att producera andra artisters skivor, och medverka som studiogitarrist på dessa. Under slutet av 1950-talet skapade han, tillsammans med bland andra Floyd Cramer, den stil inom countrymusik som kallas Nashvillesoundet, men producerade samtidigt Elvis Presleys första skiva på RCA, och återfinns även som kompgitarrist på denna.

    Chet Atkins invaldes i Rock and Roll Hall of Fame år 2002.
