Coming to the JE Broyhill Civic Center on October 24, 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 "single-handedly 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. Together with his amazing bluegrass band, Kentucky Thunder (8-time winners of the IBMA 'Instrumental Group of the Year'), Ricky Skaggs will present an unforgettable night of his lively, distinctively American form of music!
