Great songs on this list.

Here is a gentleman that, while usually assoicated with Country-Western, transcended all musical boundaries/genres
and influenced countless guitarists that followed him. Dude had MAD skills:

Chet Atkins was also extremely influential in bringing forth the Nashville Sound that was prevalent throughout the 1960s as a then-new wave of artists arrived on the scene. He had produced a number of artists' works.

And influential? Yep! A lot of guitar players of all types of music point to Chet as an influence on their careers. In fact, one of the biggest, if not the biggest , was George Harrison of the Beatles. George wrote the liner notes to Chet's lp Pickin' On The Beatles (LSP-3351), a real nice lp of cover songs by the Beatles, which was released in the Fall of 1966.


And he knew talent. He discovered two brothers singing in a club in the mid 50's and developed their talent. They turned out to have an incredible run of chart hits during their time with Cadence and Warner Brothers. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Who are they? The Everly Brothers!

I'd say country was 'semi-good' until around 2000-2001 then it all went downhill for good
