I hope you’re all having a tremendous week!
Shoot, I can’t calm Jim Ed down. He’s been running around here tickled pink that daylight savings time is just around the corner!
However, I know just the thing to catch his ear and get him to sit still…playing some good ole Bluegrass Music at a a gratuitous volume!
You see, Country Music and Bluegrass have a long history together. Both are distinctly American art forms that were crafted in the imaginations of working class folks darn near a hundred years ago.
Although the two styles would take their own paths, there have been some amazing artists to meld the two over the years. This week’s show is about one such individual, Grand Ole Opry star Mr. Ricky Skaggs!
We’ve got a prime example of that after the jump…..a video of Ricky Skaggs and Brad Paisley singing and picking on one of Ricky’s great hits “Highway 40 Blues.”
(And on the Grad Ole Opry stage, no less!)
That’s just a good time, right there!
Folks, there’s plenty more where that came from on this week’s Country Music Greats Radio Show. We’ll be playing all of Ricky’s best known hits, some deep cuts, as well as some interview clips that will give you a one-of-a-kind insight into this amazing artist!
Have a great week, everyone. We’ll see you on the radio!
