Ricky Skaggs Among New Inductees for Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame

It’s been a hall-of-fame year for Ricky Skaggs.

After being announced as a 2018 inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame in March, Ricky Skaggs was named a 2018 inductee into the IBMA Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame on July 25. Ricky will be joined by 2018 inductees Paul Williams, Tom T. Hall and the late Dixie Hall.

“I’m very honored to be inducted into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame along with the ‘Father of Bluegrass’ Bill Monroe,” says Ricky. “His impact on me and all of us as musicians and singers that love bluegrass music will never be replicated. With so many other heroes in the Hall, I’m just thankful to have my name mentioned alongside theirs.”

The induction ceremony will take place on Sept. 27 in Raleigh, N.C., at the International Bluegrass Music Awards. The awards show will be broadcast live at 7 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction (Ch. 62).
