Ricky Skaggs

. May 24, 2012.

Ricky Skaggs has paved the way for many of today’s newgrass players. He’s helped keep bluegrass both relevant and rooted, always staying true to his style, but at the same time looking to expand his boundaries through working with the likes of Jack White and Emmylou Harris over the years.
