Ricky Skaggs  will be the Country Music’s Hall of Fame and Museum’s  2013 Artist-in-Residence. The announcement was made on Saturday, October 5, at the Ryman Auditorium . Ricky will give two intimate performances at the museum’s new CMA theater on November 18-19.
“Ricky Skaggs has created his own career path,” Museum Director Kyle Young said. “It’s rare to find an artist who thrives in three different genres, but Ricky does. He is highly respected in country, bluegrass and gospel music, and he has a way of blending these styles that delights music fans. Ricky has been a great friend to the museum for many years.”
Established in 2003, the museum’s residency program “honors a musical master who can be credited with contributing a large and significant body of work to the canon of American popular music.” Previous Artist-in-Residence honorees include Cowboy Jack Clement , Earl Scruggs, Tom T. Hall, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson , Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill , Buddy Miller , Connie Smith and Kenny Rogers .
Each of Ricky’s shows will have its own theme and lineup of guest artists. The first show on November 18 will have a country music theme with special guests Emmylou Harris , Brad Paisley , Peter Frampton, Gordon Kennedy and The Whites. The second show, November 19, will honor his bluegrass roots with special guests Alison Krauss , Bruce Hornsby, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, Del McCoury and The Whites. Ricky’s band, Kentucky Thunder, will be on hand both nights.
Tickets for the Artist in Residence shows go on sale Friday, October 18 and can be purchased as www.countrymusichalloffame.org . Limited to four tickets per transaction, tickets are available on a first come, first served basis.
