Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder
Fourteen-time Grammy Award-winner Ricky Skaggs’ career is easily among the most significant in recent country music history. Early in his career, Skaggs worked with legendary bluegrass acts including Ralph Stanley, J.D. Crowe & the New South and the Country Gentleman. By 1981 he’d become a mainstream country star in his own right, capturing eight Country Music Association Awards and racking up 14 #1 hits. Since the late ‘90s Skaggs has refocused on his bluegrass roots, cutting a series of Grammy Award-winning albums with his amazing bluegrass band, Kentucky Thunder (8-time winners of the IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year).
