    Ricky Skaggs

    A life full of music - that's the story of country and bluegrass musician Ricky Skaggs. He struck his first chords on a mandolin over 50 years ago, and this Grammy, CMA, and IBMA Award winner continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive Grammy-nominated classics behind him, all from his own Skaggs Family Records label, the diverse and masterful tones made by the gifted Skaggs come from a life...

    A life full of music - that's the story of country and bluegrass musician Ricky Skaggs. He struck his first chords on a mandolin over 50 years ago, and this Grammy, CMA, and IBMA Award winner continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive Grammy-nominated classics behind him, all from his own Skaggs Family Records label, the diverse and masterful tones made by the gifted Skaggs come from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart.

    His talent catapulted him to success in the mainstream of country music, playing with Emmylou Harris and J.D. Crow & the New South, and he was the youngest member to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1982. His life's path has taken him to various musical genres, from where it all began in bluegrass music, to striking out on new musical journeys, while still leaving his musical roots intact.

    Ricky Skaggs has often said that he is "just trying to make a living" playing the music he loves, but it’s clear he’s done much more than that. The long-awaited album Music To My Ears is out now.
