The Chet Atkins Appreciation Society, otherwise known as the CAAS Convention, has been meeting in Nashville each summer since 1985. This singular musical event is unprecedented as one of Nashville’s best kept secrets amongst fingerstyle & thumb-picking aficionado’s around the world.
Each year, players from around the world migrate to Nashville, to gather at the Sheraton Music City to celebrate the life contributions & music of Chet Atkins. We gather both as fans and players, to continue to learn, to listen, to exchange licks, and share some story telling about Chet.
The atmosphere is cheerful, with players jamming in hallways, on terraces, the lounge, & patio. There are workshops with your favorite players, continual stage performances, and entertainment from all genres of music.
This year’s Chet Atkins Tribute Show:
Since 2005, we have kicked off the convention with a Tuesday night concert, featuring world class guitarists who will be attending the convention. We hope you will plan to join us for our 5th annual Chet Atkins Tribute Show… This year’s line-up is nothing short of spectacular!
