Bluegrass Unlimited with Ricky SkaggsNashville, TN -- Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine (BU) readers will find the iconic Ricky Skaggs gracing the cover of the June 2013 edition of the national publication. Skaggs recently spent some time with BU's Bill Conger to chat all about his 50+ years of making music and his most recent release, Music To My Ears (Skaggs Family Records). The June 2013 edition of BU, featuring Skaggs, is available on newsstands now.

Later this year, Skaggs will release his first-ever autobiography, titled Kentucky Traveler. The book details the life of Skaggs and gives a priceless look at America’s most cherished and vibrant musical tradition through the eyes of someone who has lived it.

In addition to releasing his autobiography, Skaggs has again teamed with music legend Bruce Hornsby, this time for a live concert album titled, Cluck Ol' Hen. The album is currently scheduled for a 3rd quarter 2013 release. More information on both projects will be announced soon.

With 12 #1 hit singles, 14 GRAMMY® Awards, eleven IBMA Awards, eight ACM Awards and eight CMA Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), Ricky Skaggs is truly a pioneer of Bluegrass and Country music. Since he began playing music more than 50 years ago, Skaggs has released more than 30 albums and has performed thousands of live shows. Skaggs and his band, Kentucky Thunder, continue to keep the tour trail red hot, performing more than 80 live dates each year. Skaggs started his own record label, Skaggs Family Records, in 1997 and has since released 12 consecutive GRAMMY®-nominated albums.
