I LOVE music…and one of my favorite genres is bluegrass! It just picks up your spirit and puts a smile on your face. Now before you roll your eyes and click on…hear me out! The musician at the top of my list is always Ricky Skaggs. His talent is unbeatable. His demeanor is engaging; and his love for Christ, unmeasureable. Ricky’s won 14 Grammys, with more to come. He’s played with the best in the business and with all types of musicians from Emmylou Harris, John Fogerty, Bruce Hornsby to the Gettys. His latest duo at the Grand Ole Opry was with an incredible 10 year old, Carson Peters. This little fiddle player is amazing!! Take a look…
What a great start to a promising future! You couldn’t ask for a better mentor.
