Skaggs and Hornsby, together again!
Ricky Skaggs, one of bluegrass and country music's most recognized ambassadors, and Bruce Hornsby, one of Pop's most talented pianists and singer-songwriters, are reuniting for the first time since originally collaborating six years ago. On August 20, the two music legends will again come together, this time for a live album, titled Cluck Ol' Hen.
Bluegrass treasures and lively expanded hits wait to be discovered on this fresh collection of songs from the masterful duo of Skaggs and Hornsby. These live songs were originally recorded when the two music icons hit the tour circuit in support of their first collaborative album, Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby. Hornsby's spirited piano brings a new dimension to these songs, with electrifying solos and improvisation thrown in the mix of Skaggs, Hornsby and Skaggs' band, Kentucky Thunder.
In addition to releasing the live album, Skaggs and Hornsby hit the road this fall, embarking on the Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby with Kentucky Thunder Tour. Thirteen dates are already on the books.
