More of That Guitar Country is a 1965 album by US country musician Chet Atkins. It is a follow-up to his Guitar Country release and was more successful. His rendition of "Yakety Sax" by Boots Randolph earned Atkins a hit on the country singles charts. A mix of traditional fingerpicking, country-flavored pop and traditional country, the album peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Country charts.

More of That Guitar Country and "Yakety Axe" were nominated for four 1965 Grammy awards but did not win any.

In an Allmusic review, critic Richard S. Ginell wrote of the album "... one of Atkins' least-cluttered, mostly reined-in, and most musical albums of the mid-'60s, searching for good material wherever he can find it, even outside the cloistered world of Nashville."[1]


  • More of That Guitar Country and Guitar Country were reissued together on CD in 2001 on the Collectibles label.
