Ricky Skaggs Inducted Into Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame

Ricky Skaggs was inducted into the IBMA Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame on Sept. 27.

Ricky was inducted with Paul Williams, Tom T. Hall and the late Dixie Hall at the 29th annual International Bluegrass Music Awards in Raleigh, N.C.

Marty Stuart had the honor of officially inducting Ricky into the esteemed organization.

“He’s a radical revisionist, he’s a traditionalist, he’s a keeper of the flame, he’s an innovator, he’s always keeping his music moving forward, he’s invited so many people into the world of country and bluegrass music, he has become a universal touchstone to our kind of music,” said Marty. “Tonight, it’s my honor to ask Ricky Skaggs to come up here and receive bluegrass music’s most coveted award. I induct Ricky Skaggs, gladly, into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame.”

“I appreciate this award so much,” said Ricky. “This means so much to me because it’s the music of my youth. It’s the foundation of everything I’ve ever recorded. I want to thank the IBMA and all those who voted for me. And I want to thank the Lord Jesus. He deserves all glory.”

Ricky will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October.
