Nashville All Stars - All-Time Country & Western Hits

Producer Chet Atkins gathered the cream of Nashville session players in the studio to record this all-instrumental album, released exclusively to RCA Victor Record Club members in 1965.

Lead guitarist on the session was Jerry Reed and among the other musicians on the date were steel guitarist Lloyd Green, pianists Hargus (Pig) Robbins and Jerry Smith and harmonica player Charlie McCoy. Chet himself didn't play on the album.

Among the songs covered on All-Time Country & Western Hits is You Don't Know Me, first recorded by its co-composer Eddy Arnold in 1955. The tune reached the peak of its popularity in 1962 after Ray Charles included it in his ground-breaking, chart-topping album Modern Sounds in Country & Western Music.

Listen to and download the Nashville All Stars' version from the link below.

You Don't Know Me

All-Time Country & Western Hits, the only LP recorded by this particular grouping of Nashville musicians, can be purchased from Amazon and other online marketplaces. Prices vary widely.
These recordings have not been issued in a digital format.
