Hearts Like Ours

Hearts Like Ours

The multiple GRAMMY, CMA and Dove Award winners are married both on stage and off in this tender work that they have waited their whole professional careers to craft in perfect harmony together. Skaggs & White previously won a CMA (Country Music Assoc.) Award for Vocal Duo of the Year and are poised for lightning to strike again with this new album, Hearts Like Ours.
Country fans will rejoice in hearing Forever s Not Long Enough, co-written by Hall of Fame songwriter Bob DiPiero. In this up-tempo tune, Skaggs is back on his red telecaster electric guitar, putting down amazing licks and his signature clear, strong vocals along with tight harmony by White. In Reasons To Hang On, a new song co-written by Leslie Satcher, hit-maker for George Strait, Vince Gill and Reba McEntire, one finds a simple country faith that s really anything but simple, driven by mandolin and guitar to make a full country sound. A soothing steel intro opens When I m Good And Gone, co-written with heartfelt sincerity by country music artist Buddy Jewell after his father s passing. The tune If I Needed You special to Skaggs & White, sung to each other on their wedding day, showcases true love along with Hearts Like Ours, written by another country couple, Marty Stuart and Connie Smith.
With throwback sounds for today s country audience, fans will appreciate the mix of mandolin, fiddle, steel, guitars and drums, bringing the best sounds of yesterday and today together. Hearts Like Ours captures a modern take on a classic country feel and is destined to be a highlight in country music this year.

Bluegrass Rules!

Bluegrass Rules!

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE”Country rocks … but bluegrass rules.” If Ricky Skaggs was looking for a manifesto for his long-awaited bluegrass comeback, he couldn’t have done much better than this disc’s five-second preamble. Contractually barred from recording bluegrass for more than 12 years, Skaggs has obviously been champing at the bit. After the aforementioned introduction, he promptly unleashes an instrumental “Get Up John” that still has smoke wafting from my CD player. Dandy versions of “Little Maggie,” “If I Lose,” and “Rank Stranger” follow, to single out just a few. The musicianship here is uniformly superb, especially Skaggs’s own mandolin playing, the guitar work of Bryan Sutton, Bobby Hicks’s fiddling, and even a nice guest turn from Jerry Douglas. If there’s any justice, the commercial success of Bluegrass Rules will send a strong message to record companies: Bluegrass music can and does sell records, especially when it’s as flawlessly executed as Skaggs’s latest. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait as long for the next one. –Mary Park

Ricky Skaggs first-ever solo album, Ricky Skaggs Solo (SONGS MY DAD LOVED), is exactly what the title implies. Ricky Skaggs solo. No studio musicians. No guest artists. Just Ricky Skaggs doing what Ricky Skaggs does best. Highly regarded as an award winning country and bluegrass music master, Skaggs is legendary for bringing renewed hope and vitality to the country music mainstream in the early 1980s with scores of #1 hits and numerous awards and for his triumphant return to his first love, bluegrass, with his successful Skaggs Family Records label. But the true story behind his remarkable career can be traced back to the first music he remembers hearing the songs his dad loved.
