Ricky Skaggs Announces First Country Concert in 20 Years

Country and bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs will soon hit the stage for his first all-country headlining set in over 20 years.

The celebrated 63-year-old artist is set to perform at the Nashville Palace in Nashville, Tenn. on Sept. 2. After the death of bluegrass legend Bill Monroe, who Skaggs first played with at the age of 6, Ricky dedicated his time to making sure the genre would live on. Although he has played thousands of bluegrass shows over his career, Skaggs is now ready to reconnect with the country hits that catapulted him up the charts during the 1980s.

Fans can expect to hear his No. 1 hits “Heartbroke,” “Country Boy,” “Honey (Open That Door)” and “Don’t Cheat In Our Hometown.”
