The career of 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs is among the most significant in recent country music history. Among his many statuettes and honors are 12 #1 hit singles, scores of Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year awards, International Bluegrass Association and Dove awards, three honorary Doctorate degrees, induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the Country Music Hall of Fame and an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award. And that’s just naming a few of his distinctions. He was credited by Chet Atkins as “single-handedly” saving country music from the onslaught of 80s’ commercialization, leading the way in the neo-traditional music movement. He is a true virtuoso whose path has led him from bluegrass to country and gospel, to deep roots mountain music. Skaggs and his award-winning band Kentucky Thunder return to the Spencer stage in a performance packed with his greatest hits, beautifully blended vocals and blazing fast instrumentals. The evening’s all-star lineup features Skaggs on mandolin, Paul Brewster (tenor vocals, rhythm guitar), Scott Mulvahill (bass, bass vocals), Russ Carson (banjo), Jake Workman (lead guitar), Mike Barnett (fiddle) and Dennis Parker (baritone vocals, guitar).
