Chet Atkins' Jitterbug Waltz [View all]

The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Chet Atkins' birth. The Nashville Ballet staged this dance duet in the HOF rotunda, set to a recording of Atkins' performance of the piece. Notice the very largeThomas Hart Benton painting, called "Sources of Country Music," in the background, and how the live dancers' costumes echo the clothes of the couple in the painting! The creative fusion of music, dance, and art are part of the joy of living in Nashville.
