Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder will be featured Saturday, October 22nd in Escher Auditorium at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph.  And this Sunday, I'll give you a preview of the show.

The concert is the Treasure Chest Tour.  And it will feature a mix of Skaggs classic country hits as well as a collection of his famous bluegrass tunes.

Ricky Skaggs was born in Cordell, Kentucky.  He started playing music at the tender age of five.

2011 marks the 52nd year since Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin.  He's won fourteen Grammy Awards.

Join me Sunday October 16th for the life and music of Ricky Skaggs at 11:00 AM on the Country Classic Show.
