Ricky Skaggs Brings Out the Stars for Artist-in-Residence Shows
It’s going to be a busy couple of days for Ricky Skaggs.
The 14-time Grammy winner, who was announced as the 2013 Artist-in-Residence for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, will perform two back-to-back shows at the venue starting Monday night (Nov. 18).
Monday evening’s show, called Country Boy at Heart, will include performances by Brad Paisley, Emmylou Harris, Peter Frampton and Gordon Kennedy. Tuesday night’s concert, named the Bluegrass Rules show, will feature Bruce Hornsby, Alison Krauss, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, and Del McCoury. The Whites, as well as his own band, Kentucky Thunder, will share the stage with Skaggs both nights.
“Ricky Skaggs has created his own career path,” Museum Director Kyle Young explains. “It’s rare to find an artist who thrives in three different genres, but Ricky does. He is highly respected in country, bluegrass and gospel music, and he has a way of blending these styles that delights music fans.”
Tickets for the two shows are still available for purchase here.
It’s been a big year for the 59-year-old. He released his autobiography, ‘Kentucky Traveler: My Life in Music,’ as well as his collaborative album with Hornsby, ‘Cluck Ol’ Hen,’ which soared to the top of the charts.
Skaggs is spending the remainder of the year on the road, performing several shows with Hornsby, as well as some solo dates and several Skaggs Family Christmas concerts. Keep track of all of his upcoming shows here.
