This may have been posted before, but just in case here is a link to the Georgia Music publication story about Chet Atkins with a 1935 photo provided by Chet's daughter Merle Atkins Russell.

Great article! Thanks for posting!

As I read the article and remembered the Certified Guitar Player display at the Country Music Hall of Fame I also recalled visiting the HOF later after the CGP display had ended and being disappointed at the minimal amount of Chet's guitars, etc. that they had on display. Now I know I am prejudiced, but it seems to me they should have more Chet items on display all the time. This lead me to think how great it would be if there could be a Chet Atkins theater and museum much the same as they have in Muhlenberg County Kentucky in honor of Merle Travis. They certainly have a wonder facility there. Just something to think about....
