Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder

Fifteen-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Ricky Skaggs will perform on the Historic Academy Theatre stage on September 4, 2022!

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.
