Country music legend Ricky Skaggs wowed a sold-out honky tonk crowd in Nashville last Saturday night (Sept. 2). For the first time in 20 years, Skaggs plugged-in his electric guitar and joined his band onstage at the Nashville Palace for a two-hour live concert featuring the hit country songs that made him famous including “Heartbroke,” “Highway 40 Blues,” “Uncle Pen,” “Country Boy,” “Honey (Open That Door),” “I Don’t Care,” and “Lovin’ Only Me,” among many others.  Skaggs also performed “Somebody’s Praying” and dedicated it to Houston and the other areas in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey.

“I wanna thank everyone who came out to the Nashville Palace last week,” says Skaggs. “I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. It was so great to sing those old country hits. Let’s do it again real soon!”
