A life full of music. That’s the story of Ricky Skaggs. By age 21, he was already considered a recognized master of one of America’s most demanding art forms, Bluegrass. With 12 #1 hit singles, 15 GRAMMY Awards, 13 IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Awards, eight ACM Awards and eight CMA Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), Ricky Skaggs is truly a pioneer of Bluegrass and Country music.
Known today as Bluegrass music’s official ambassador, Ricky Skaggs has brought the genre to a greater level of popularity and continues to lead in bringing vitality to country’s most down to earth art form, the Bluegrass sound.
The all-star lineup of Kentucky Thunder includes Paul Brewster (tenor vocals, rhythm guitar), Russ Carson (banjo), Jake Workman (lead guitar), Mike Barnett (fiddle), Dennis Parker (baritone vocals, guitar) and Jeff Picker (bass, bass vocals).
2018 marked the 59 th year since Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin. He will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville in October.
