'' Chet Atkins Picks on The Beatles '' is the title of a recording by American guitarist Chet Atkins. Atkins interprets a selection of songs by The Beatles on this album.

The sleeve features liner notes by George Harrison and there is a photo of Atkins wearing a "Beatle wig" on the back cover. It peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Country Albums charts and No. 112 on the Pop Albums charts.

Atkins never recorded with the Gretsch ''Country Gentleman'' 12-string guitar that was made especially for him and is pictured on the cover.

The recording was nominated for Best Instrumental Recording (other than Jazz) at the 1967 Grammy awards. - Wikipedia
