(I wonder why Chet's smilin'.... lol)

This is Les Paul, Dolly Parton and Chet at the Grammys...  And, there he is a smilin' at her, again.  (lol)


Somehow we got a hold of this picture shot "awhile" back of Ray Cummins playing Chet's guitar with Tommy Jones watching on the left, and our good buddy and Columbus native, Terry Efaw, on the right...

Chet with a flat pick....


A couple pictures of Chet and his wife Leona.  The one of the left, obviously, waaay back when they wre first married, and the one about is them  looking at his statue during the presentation in Nashville shortly before his passing. (Waaaaaay too soon..)

Best friends since childhood - Jerry Reed & Chip Young...
