thanks to Tony Beazley and Mark McCoy for providing this nice graphic
Chet to be honored this Wednesday with unveiling of statue in Nashville
On Wednesday January 12th at 10AM, a sculpture of Chet will
be unveiled in downtown Nashville at the Bank of America Plaza.
According to sources in Nashville, Bank of
America has commissioned artist Russell Faxon to create the unique life-sized
sculpture, which depicts Chet on a stool playing his Gibson Guitar. Next to
Chet is an empty stool for visitors to use so that they can sit and "play guitar with Chet." We will
be adding photos of the ceremony and of the sculpture to the website next week.
Governor Don Sundquist and a host of luminaries from the music industry
will be present to honor Chet for his lifetime of contributions. Congratulations
Chet for this well-deserved honor!
