Edit Review Tommy Emmanuel  Americana 
Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel has a professional career that spans over four decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to pick up the instrument. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans. Chet and Tommy eventually recorded together in 1996 on "The Day the Finger Pickers Took Over the World", for which Emmanuel's received his first Grammy award nomination. This was Chet's last recording before his death in 2001. In 1999, Chet honored Tommy Emmanuel the rare title of "Certified Guitar Player" for his lifetime contribution to the art of fingerstyle guitar playing, a rare honor shared by only three other people in the world (Jerry Reed, Steve Warner and John Knowles).
