and Kentucky Thunder
2012 marks the 53rd year since Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin, and this fourteen–time Grammy Award winner continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive Grammy–nominated classics behind him, all from his own Skaggs Family Records label, the diverse and masterful tones made by the gifted Skaggs come from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart.
"This group of guys meets my approval every night," Ricky says. "Each and every one of the pickers in Kentucky Thunder totally amazes me in every show." The all–star lineup of Kentucky Thunder includes Andy Leftwich on fiddle, Cody Kilby on lead guitar, Paul Brewster on tenor vocals and rhythm guitar, Eddie Faris on baritone vocals and guitar, Justin Moses on banjo and background vocals, and Scott Mulvahill on bass and bass vocals. The group has won seven Grammy Awards.
