Ricky Skaggs’ Journey as a Country Singer

At a young age, the singer already has his path drawn for him. He learned how to play different instruments such as the fiddle, guitar, monocaster, and banjo. However, the first instrument that he learned to play was Mandolin. It was a special instrument for him since it was his father who taught him how to play it. He grew up playing and performing at different venues and that is where he met country legends like Keith Whitley and Vince Gill.

He was then introduced to the Grand Ole Opry and was later on inducted at an early age. In fact, he was the youngest to be inducted into the Opry during his time. This is a testament to the skills and talents of Ricky Skaggs. And last year,  he finally got his induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
