Chet Atkins Exhibit Extended

The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum has extended its exhibition of Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player through July 15, 2012! Originally scheduled to close on June 11, the extension will,  in part, accommodate members of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society as well as attendees at Summer NAMM, who will be visiting Nashville in July, to attend the exhibition. The extension also allows the museum to present additional public programs exploring Chet’s robust career and lasting influence.

Among the upcoming programming highlights are an April 28 interview with Jerry Bradley, and a May 5 concert saluting Jerry Reed.  Both programs will be live streamed at  

Additional special programs are currently planned through May with more to be added. A complete schedule of programs can be found HERE.

These programs, offered as part of the special exhibition Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player, made possible through the generous support of the Gretsch Company with additional support provided by Great American Country Television Network, are included with museum admission and free to museum members. The Ford Theater offers limited seating. Museum ticket or membership does not guarantee entry to museum programs.
