Ricky Skaggs struck his first chords on a mandolin over 50 years ago, and now this multiple-award winning musician, whose songs are some of the most beloved and most awarded in country music history, continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With an astounding 14 Grammy Awards over the course of his illustrious career, the Skaggs’ celebrated music comes from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart. Skaggs has put his own stamp on the country format by infusing his bluegrass and traditional country music roots into the contemporary Nashville 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).
“Bluegrass veteran Ricky Skaggs led his Kentucky Thunder outfit through a spirited romp worthy of the Grand Ole Opry…sizzling, pickin’ and grinnin’.” – The Globe & Mail
