From the first moment he took to a stage — and played Bill Montoe’s mandolin — at age six, Ricky Skaggs has been delighting audiences with his unique mastery of country and bluegrass.

Born and raised in eastern Kentucky, Skaggs hit his professional stride in the 1980s, when he started winning Grammys and CMA awards by the bushel.

But he didn’t forget his roots. By the beginning of the 2000s, Skaggs returned to traditional bluegrass.

And now he’s written his autobiography, “Kentucky Traveler,” which his publisher calls “a priceless look at America’s most cherished and vibrant musical tradition through the eyes of someone who has lived it.”
