Ricky Skaggs
Date(s): Jul 03, 2015
When: 7:30 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  $25, $30, $35.

A life full of music is the story of Ricky Skaggs. By age 21, he was already considered a "recognized master" of one of America's most demanding art forms, but his career took him in other directions, catapulting him to popularity and success in the mainstream of country music. His life's path has taken him to various musical genres, from where it all began in bluegrass music, to striking out on new musical journeys, while still leaving his musical roots intact. Ricky is a 14-time Grammy Award winner and continues to do his part to lead the recent revival in Bluegrass music.

With 11 million career albums sold and 6 GRAMMY Awards to his credit, TobyMac refuses to settle on past accomplishments, as he remains passionate about his desire to write songs at the intersection where life and spirituality collide. From his early days in influential group dcTalk to his very first solo album, Momentum, Toby has worked hard to inspire his audience with words of conviction, hope, empowerment and the redemption found in his faith in God. "What is it like to live a life of faith? It doesn't look perfect, I can promise you that," Toby admits. "We're all struggling. We're struggling to mend relationships, to love people well, and to love God. But the gift of walking this life of faith is that you can make it right each day. You can turn and start over, determined, with your eye on it." With its messages of perseverance, determination and hope, Toby's work is further proof that music can better lives, reassure listeners that it is indeed possible to find grace.
