    Ricky Skaggs is a 15 time GRAMMY Award-winner whose 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 the legendary guitarist Chat Atkins once credited him with "single-handedly saving country music".  His life's path has taken him to various musical genres and artistic journeys, while still leaving his bluegrass roots intact.  Skaggs struck his first chords on a mandolin more than 50 years ago and he continues to do his part to lead the roots revival in music.  His passion puts him in the position to bring the lively, distinctively American form of music into the ears and hearts of audiences across the country and around the world.
