Ricky Skaggs has announced two new projects. The country and bluegrass legend is releasing an autobiography, and he’s also working on an album of duets with his wife, singer Sharon White.

‘Kentucky Traveler: My Life in Music’ is slated to arrive in stores on Aug. 13. “I know more about myself now than I’ve ever known before, ever,” Skaggs tells Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper. “It’s amazing how — when you go back and start reminiscing and thinking of your childhood — what a story it is. We gave them a lot to work with. It’s a great book.”

He and White have completed five songs for their duets album, which is planned for next year. They debuted some of those songs at CMA Music Festival in June, and White will appear with Skaggs and his band, Kentucky Thunder, at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Thursday (July 25) as part of the Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman series.

Skaggs wasn’t exactly sitting around bored prior to undertaking these new projects. He is still promoting his current album, ‘Music to My Ears,’ and he will release a live album titled ‘Cluck Ol’ Hen’ with Bruce Hornsby in August. The pair will also tour throughout October and November.
