A guitarist without parallel, Chet Atkins (1924-2001), who was known as "Mr. Guitar", was largely responsible for country music crossing over to the pop charts in the 1950s and 1960s. Atkins, who won 11 Grammy Awards and was named Instrumentalist of the Year nine times by the CMA, had made his first appearance with the Grand Ole Opry in 1946 and was a studio musician on hundreds of recordings beginning in 1949. Credited with helping to create the Nashville sound, Atkins released his first album, Chet Atkins' Galloping Guitar, in 1953 and had his first hit with "Mr. Sandman" in 1955. He would later reach the Top 5 on the pop charts with "Yakety Sax", a rework of the Boots Randolph hit. Atkins, who also designed guitars for Gretsch and Gibson, also made his mark as a record producer, furthering the early careers of Elvis Presley, Eddy Arnold and the Everly Brothers and discovering future stars, including Waylon Jennings, Charley Pride, Floyd Cramer and Bobby Bare. In 1973, Atkins, who had played in venues from the Newport Jazz Festival to the White House, became the youngest person ever inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Edges lightly ragged.
