Teensville is the title of a recording by American guitarist and producer Chet Atkins. The idea here was for Chet to release a record appealing to teens who were now interested in rock 'n roll. The original version of "Oh, Lonesome Me", a hit on both the pop and country charts for Don Gibson, was produced by Chet and featured his guitar.

The original liner notes were by The Everly Brothers whom Atkins later produced.
