Ricky Skaggs receives lifetime achievement award

Last Wednesday night at the Americana Music Association’s annual Honors and Awards ceremony, legendary country and bluegrass singer Ricky Skaggs was awarded the organization’s esteemed Lifetime Achievement Award for Instrumentalist.

From the stage of the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, guitar legend Ry Cooder presented Skaggs with the award.

“What a thrill to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from one of my musical heroes, Ry Cooder. I’ve listened to and loved his music for so many years,” notes Skaggs. “There are so many musicians who are very deserving of this great award. I’m very thankful to the Americana Music Association for this great honor. I’m glad to be part of the Americana music community. They still care about music. So do I.”

During the ceremony, Skaggs, Cooder and Sharon White performed “Just Over In The Glory Land” live on-stage. The trio is currently traveling the nation on the critically-acclaimed “Cooder-White-Skaggs” tour.
