Ricky Skaggs struck his first chords on a mandolin over 50 years ago and with Kentucky Thunder, his band of virtuoso pickers, he leads the revival in roots music. A fifteen time GRAMMY® Award winner, Ricky Skaggs' career is easily among the most significant in recent country music history. If Skaggs' burgeoning trophy case full of awards wasn't already enough evidence of that fact, consider that legendary guitarist Chet Atkins once credited Skaggs with "singlehandedly saving country music." 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.
