Alison Krauss - Ricky Skaggs To Celebrate 30th Grand Ole Opry Anniversary
Country singers Alison Krauss and Josh Turner are among the stars lining up to salute Ricky Skaggs at a concert marking his 30th year as a Grand Ole Opry member.
The Whites and Dailey & Vincent will also take to the stage to perform in honour of the Country Boy hitmaker at the famed venue in Nashville, Tennessee on 15 May (12).
Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher says, "Not unlike Ricky's music, the list of artists lined up to honour him on May 15 is eclectic and award-winning. It's going to be a night of great musicianship as we celebrate all that Ricky means to the Opry family."
Skaggs was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry - one of the highest honours for a country star - on 15 May, 1982.
