Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder Concert Giveaway

**Giveaway ended! Congratulations to Lora Sigman.

Ricky Skaggs Concert
Make plans to attend a special evening with music legend Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder at the Samaritanโ€™s Purse Training and Conference Center in Blowing Rock, N.C., on September 22 at 7 p.m. Two lucky readers will be able to attend as we have partnered with Samaritan’s Purse to offer a giveaway. Continue reading to the end of the post to enter.

Skaggs has been playing professionally since 1971, when he joined the band of bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley. He has gone on to become a legend in his own right, with 14 Grammy Awards for Best Southern, Country, or Bluegrass Gospel Album, a Gospel Music Association Dove Award for Bluegrass Recorded Album of the Year, and Inspirational Country Music Awards for Musician of the Year as well as Mainstream Country Artist of the Year and Inspirational Bluegrass Artist of the Year (with The Whites). In 2012, he was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Skaggs’ faith is a vital part of his art, as he makes “music that is in my head and in my heart.” He has performed at several Franklin Graham evangelistic festivals and events, including the special celebration of the 100 millionth shoebox gift collected by Operation Christmas Child earlier this year.
