Ricky Skaggs Officially Inducted Into Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame

Last night in Raleigh, N.C. at the 29th Annual International Bluegrass Music Awards, 15-time GRAMMY® winner Ricky Skaggs was officially inducted into the IBMA Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame.

Skaggs was inducted by his longtime friend and fellow GRAMMY® winner, Marty Stuart.

“He’s a radical revisionist, he’s a traditionalist, he’s a keeper of the flame, he’s an innovator, he’s always keeping his music moving forward, he’s invited so many people into the world of country and bluegrass music, he has become a universal touchstone to our kind of music,” Stuart said from the stage. “Tonight, it’s my honor to ask Ricky Skaggs to come up here and receive bluegrass music’s most coveted award. I induct Ricky Skaggs, gladly, into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame.”

Skaggs took the stage to thunderous applause where he was bestowed the highest honor in bluegrass music.

“I appreciate this award so much,” said Skaggs upon accepting the honor. “This means so much to me because it’s the music of my youth. It’s the foundation of everything I’ve ever recorded. I want to thank the IBMA and all those who voted for me. And I want to thank the Lord Jesus. He deserves all glory.”

Along with Paul Williams, Tom T. Hall and the late Dixie Hall, Skaggs was inducted as part of the Class of 2018.

Skaggs promised the late Bill Monroe that he’d do his part to keep bluegrass alive. Since Monroe’s passing in 1996, he has kept that promise, playing thousands of live bluegrass shows and releasing several albums dedicated to the genre. In 1997, he founded his own record label, Skaggs Family Records, to help keep bluegrass music alive and growing. Over the years, he’s helped numerous bluegrass acts forge ahead, nurturing their careers with invaluable advice and counsel.

This year is shaping up to be one of the biggest of Skaggs’ lengthy career. Last spring, he was announced as a 2018 inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He will be formally inducted into the historic institution next month.

Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder will perform a headline show at IBMA’s Wide Open Bluegrass Festival tomorrow, September 29, in Raleigh. The concert will feature a special collaborative performance with Patty Loveless. Tickets are on-sale now at wideopenbluegrass.com.

About Ricky Skaggs
Earning 12 #1 hit singles, 15 GRAMMY® Awards, 13 IBMA Awards, nine ACM Awards, eight CMA Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), two Dove Awards, the ASCAP Founders Award, three honorary Doctorate degrees, inductions into the Musicians Hall of Fame and GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the 2013 Artist-In-Residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award in the Instrumentalist category along with countless other awards, Ricky Skaggs is truly a pioneer of Bluegrass and Country music. Since he began playing music more than 50 years ago, Skaggs has released more than 30 albums and has performed thousands of live shows. He started his own record label, Skaggs Family Records, in 1997 and has since released 12 consecutive GRAMMY®-nominated albums. His latest release, Hearts Like Ours, with his wife, celebrated artist Sharon White of The Whites features the couple dueting on handpicked country love songs. And the Grand Ole Opry member has released his first-ever autobiography, “Kentucky Traveler.” The book details the life and times of Skaggs and provides a descriptive history of Country and Bluegrass music, as told by the master himself. In addition to his regular touring schedule with his band, Kentucky Thunder, he has performed a string of dates with his better half Sharon White along with guitar legend Ry Cooder on the critically-acclaimed “Cooder-White-Skaggs” tour and from time to time hits the road with versatile singer/songwriter and pianist Bruce Hornsby on another critically-acclaimed tour, “Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby with Kentucky Thunder.” Most recently, Skaggs has added Country tour dates as he plugs in and plays full shows of his chart-topping hits and is due to be inducted into the revered Country Music Hall of Fame Class of 2018 this fall.

  32. She flicked off the lights and pushed him against the wall. A frame fell face down on the floor and shattered next to them. She didn’t allow him to take notice. She bit at his bottom lip, tugging his face, commanding him to follow her lead as she walked backwards down the hallway, deeper into the darkness, her darkness. And he, submitting to her bestial strength, simply weaved his fingers into the rust of her hair and bowed to her dominion. Like a lowly, unassuming insect, captivated by her hellfire glow.

    Halfway down the hall, she slammed him back first into the wall again, harder than before — no frames there that time. She clawed at his chest under his shirt as she ate his kiss once more and bit down his neck; the groans he breathed out into the obscurity flinched sharply as her fangs grew less and less forgiving.

    His buckle caught the flash of lamplight seeping in from somewhere outside as she tugged at the leather strap of his belt. She ran her fingers up and back down the front of his chest, back down to his waist, and unclasped his belt, plucking it from the loops with a single sliding pull. Feverishly, she tore his pants open and moved them, along with his boxers, down just enough to reveal his smug erection. With both palms on his board-firm chest, she smirked at him, kissed him once more, a little softer than before, and squatted down before him.

    The little man drew from one sleeve a small stick, looking as though he had pulled it from a bush to scrape his teeth on his way over, and dragged it along the ground in a circle around me. As he completed the circle he spat on the joining and straightened again.

    I grew alarmed as he drew a small knife from somewhere or other, but he only cut his own finger and splashed a few drops on to the dust. “Now, creature,” he said, looking me in the eyes at last. “Simply walk over my circle, return to your home, prove me wrong, and we shall trouble you no more.”

  56. Angela Crews Beardsley What happened to George Floyd is wrong, but this……. is just as WRONG. I am so sad for this officer. He was serving his community and trying to make a positive difference. The shooter, perpetrator, deserves full punishment, life in prison. This rioting needs to stop now. It is not about Floyd anymore. It is anarchy. Political activist trying to breakdown society and create chaos and influence elections. Disgusting that the youth are so WOKE and can’t bsee they are being played. And… I stand with all lives, black, white, brown, red, and cops…..they all matter. Politicians are using the people to divide and conquer here. And they are succeeding. I pray for this man’s family and George’s. They are suffering needlessly. This evil is going to destroy us. The riots are cancerous and will only hurt not help. God help us please.

  57. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
