Me & Jerry is the first duet studio album by Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed, released in 1970. Consisting of pop, country and standards, this collaboration won the 1971 Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance. Chet is on the left and Jerry on the right (standing up). It was followed by Me & Chet in 1972.
Because Reed was primarily an acoustic player, this album is all-acoustic, giving listeners a rare opportunity to hear Atkins away from the studio gadgetry that was his stock-in-trade for most of the '60s. At the dawn of the '70s, Jerry Reed was starting to eclipse Chet Atkins as America’s most famous fingerpicker. However, any rivalry between the two musicians was purely imagined. Atkins always welcomed the opportunity to collaborate with his peers and mentor younger players, and his 1970 duet album with Reed is a warm and relaxed affair that emanates friendship and respect.

Me & Jerry is the more casual effort, as Atkins (in your right speaker) and Reed (in your left) pick their way through a number of pop standards, including "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "MacArthur Park. Atkins is the more sedate of the two, as Reed can be heard humming and singing snatches of the lyrics here and there, but it's the interaction between them that makes the recordings valuable
