About Ricky Skaggs

As a child prodigy, Ricky Skaggs played with bluegrass legends Flatt & Scruggs and went on to become part of bluegrass patriarch Ralph Stanley’s band at the age of 15.

By the late 1970s, Skaggs had already garnered a wealth of experience when he joined Emmylou Harris’ Hot Band, showing his astounding versatility on the band’s Roses in the Snow album. Skaggs then went on to become a recording artist on his own with the release of Waitin’ for the Sun to Shine in 1981. With this album, Skaggs reached the top of the country charts and remained there throughout most of the 1980s, resulting in 12 Number-One hits. He also became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1982, the youngest to ever be inducted at that time, and went on to win eight awards from the Country Music Association (CMA), including Entertainer of the Year in 1985. 15 GRAMMY Awards and dozens of other honors followed.

In recent years, Skaggs became an inductee in the National Fiddler Hall of Fame, IBMA’s Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and country music’s greatest honor, the Country Music Hall of Fame.
