He might describe himself as “just a country boy,” but from his days as a little kid playing on the Grand Ole Opry stage to fronting the Grammy-Award-winning Kentucky Thunder, Ricky Skaggs has made quite a mark on the music world.
He’ll bring that lifetime of pickin’ and grinnin’ to the Palace Theatre at 3:30 p.m. March 31.
Before he hit his teenage years, Skaggs was already sharing a stage with bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.
It wasn’t long before he was picking his way into legendary bluegrass lineups like an early incarnation of J.D. Crowe & the New South, alongside heroes of the genre like Crowe, Tony Rice and Bobby Slone.
Skaggs struck out on his own and has blazed a path that includes 15 Grammy Awards, a dozen Grammy-nominated albums dating back to 1998 and 11 Billboard No. 1 songs on the country charts.
Tickets for the March 31 show range from $38 to $90 and can be purchased online at ThePalaceTheatre.org or by calling 724-836-8000.
