Ricky Skaggs

Today’s inspirational features the 14 time Grammy Awarding winning Bluegrass and Country Music singer Ricky Skaggs! Ricky Skaggs is widely known for his incredible bluegrass performances and for his talent on the mandolin. Ricky Skaggs and his band Kentucky Thunder always know how to put on a show. They are currently playing shows all across the country and playing shows in the Grand Ole Opry and at the Rymen Theater in Nashville, Tennessee. Ricky Skaggs is recognized as being the person who saved and brought back country music in the 80s and 90s. Ricky Skaggs has been singing and playing on the mandolin since he was 5 years old. Recently, Ricky published a book called “Kentucky Traveler, My Life in Music,” where he talks and shares stories of how he became the legendary Ricky Skaggs. Ricky has an amazing voice that touches many, especially with his gospel songs.

What a lot of people don’t know about Ricky Skaggs is that he is a photographer. I had the opportunity for three years in a row to attend a photo workshop with Ricky and got to know him. He is one of the most kindest people you will ever meet! I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity of shooting pictures of him with his instruments in a studio session with him among other photographers. That is where I got the chance to do a portrait photoshoot with just him!
