Ricky Skaggs Bio
Fifteentime 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. In the past decade, he has been honored with inductions into the Gospel Music Association's Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the Musicians Hall of Fame and most recently has been named as a member elect to the Country Music Hall of Fame Class of 2018.
