Diskografi

Skapade det så kallade Nashvillesoundet med dess karakteristiska "finger-picking", en spelstil där tummen ger basen och de övriga fingrarna ger melodispelet. Atkins gjorde över 100 LP-skivor i eget namn men hade sin största betydelse som ackompanjatör och producent. 1965 fick han en hit med Yakety axe.
