Kentucky TravelerNashville, TN -- Country music and Bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs is set for several national television appearances in support of his new autobiography, Kentucky Traveler, and his most recent CD, Cluck Ol' Hen, a collaborative live album with pop artist Bruce Hornsby.

This Saturday morning (today!), Skaggs will appear on the Fox News Channel's Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld and will perform on the network's hit morning news show, Fox & Friends. Skaggs will also appear on The Better Show (The Hallmark Channel & nationally syndicated TV) on Thanksgiving Day.

Cluck Ol' Hen is a fresh collection of songs from the masterful duo of Skaggs and Hornsby. The live tunes were originally recorded when the two music icons hit the tour circuit in support of their first collaborative album, Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby. Hornsby’s spirited piano brings a new dimension to these songs, with electrifying solos and improvisation thrown in the mix of Skaggs, Hornsby and Skaggs’ band, Kentucky Thunder.

Skaggs and Hornsby hit the road this fall, embarking on the Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby with Kentucky Thunder Tour.
Ricky Skaggs released his first-ever unprecedented piece of Bluegrass and Country Music literature, an autobiography, titled Kentucky Traveler on August 13, 2013. 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. The bluegrass music legend has just about done it all over the course of his 50+ years in music. With hundreds of career accolades and countless life experiences under his belt, Skaggs certainly has a story to tell. Now, for the first time, Skaggs is ready to tell the story of his life with the release of his personal autobiography, Kentucky Traveler (It Books).

In Kentucky Traveler, Ricky Skaggs, the music legend who revived modern bluegrass music, gives a warm, honest, one-of-a-kind memoir of forty years in music—along with the Ten Commandments of Bluegrass, as handed down by Ricky’s mentor Bill Monroe; the Essential Guide to Bedrock Country Songs, a lovingly compiled walk through the songs that have moved Skaggs the most throughout his life; Songs the Lord Taught Us, a primer on Skaggs’s most essential gospel songs; and a bevy of personal snapshots of his musical heroes.
