My regular readers know all about the Grand Opening Of The Bluegrass Hall Of Fame that is currently transpiring in Owensboro Kentucky (home of ROMP). There is a lot of partying up there with bands and workshops, I haven’t had the chance to go visit YET….oh do not worry folks I have BIG PLANS to cover this institution, and other happenings there in the future, but with all of the things happening at BOTH this one and the Country Music Hall Of Fame in Nashville, Mr. Ricky Skaggs has a LOT to be proud of!

So allow me to backpedal into the spring of this year while I was concentrating on Memphis and the Ameripolitan Awards the Hall Of Fame was bustling as to WHO would be inducted in 2018?
The time finally came to see Mr. Ricky Skaggs, Miss Dottie West and Mr. Johnny Gimble inducted.

He was heralded and honored this year at the Hall Of Fame as he was handed Mr. Bill Monroe’s actual mandolin, a sixty five year old pillar of the very foundation of the father of Bluegrass that permanently resides within the walls of the Hall Of Fame. He and Mr. Garth brooks began trading vocals on the versus of “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, which is the traditional song that closes said event yearly.

Being a former member of Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys at a VERY YOUNG age, he personally promised the Legend that he would do all he could to uphold and maintain the genre of Bluegrass music after Mr. Bill passed away. I firmly think that he would be extremely proud of Mr. Ricky after his 2018 accomplishments.

Then just a few months after this happened it was announced on Sirius XM during alive broadcast of the Bluegrass Junction program that he had been also inducted into the IBMA Bluegrass Music Hall Of Fame Calls Of 2018. Along with Mr. Paul Williams, and Mr. Tom T. And Miss Dixie Hall.

In 1997 he founded and formed his own label called Skaggs Family Records and has released MANY great Bluegrass albums, after a short stint in the Country Music genre. Much like Mr. Ernest Tubb did for Country Music, Mr. Ricky Skaggs is nurturing the careers of many artists on his label.

Fast forward to today where he is playing two dates at the IBMA Hall Of Fame in November for tickets please click the link below!

The Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum is thrilled to announce 15 -time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs will perform two dates in Woodward Theatre:
  • Friday, November 16th, 2018
  • Saturday, November 17th, 2018
A life full of music.  That’s the story of Ricky Skaggs.  By age 21, he was already considered a “recognized master” of one of America’s most demanding art forms, but his career took him in other directions, catapulting him to popularity and success in the mainstream of 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.
Skaggs, a Kentucky native, is part of the recently announced 2018 International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) Hall of Fame induction class, in addition to his recent induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.  
Doors open at 7 pm, shows begin at 8 pm.

  1. I travel all around the world for work, and it used to be really lonely. Now I can go onto Tinder and have a date lined up in a new city before I even get out of the airport!
