When once upon a heart then fell a melody
When music had it’s start then found itself a key
It climbed up on a hill to open up it’s mouth
To give the world it’s thrill to let go something out
The Heavens were in awe for something then occurred
Without a single flaw the song at once was heard
So now we have the song thank God we have the song
The song to sing
  . . . Charles Atkins

To most people, he is known as a serious musician and a polite gentleman with a social conscious. A real, down home person, and a talented musician with a big heart.

His chosen instruments are keyboards and vocals. He has performed with Sam and Dave, and Benny Latimore. He has since branched out on his own.
