Chet Atkins Appreciation Society



Welcome to, official website of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society (CAAS). Our mission is to celebrate the musical legacy of Chet Atkins and to preserve its history. Chet was known to the world as "Mister Guitar," with a career spanning over sixty years, during which he created an amazing body of work, as a guitarist and also as a record producer for RCA Victor. Through our journal Mister Guitar and annual Nashville gathering, we've been telling Chet's story and bringing his music to life for over 35 years. 

Each year at our convention in Nashville, we meet for four days to watch, listen and learn about the music of one of the greatest musicians the world has ever known. On this site you will find information on becoming a member, attending the annual convention, and get the latest information about CAAS. Members receive Mister Guitar, the official journal of CAAS, a full color magazine published three times a year, full of articles, guitar tips, and music transcriptions. Please explore the website and learn more about what we do!
