Ricky Skaggs Announces Initial 2011 Treasure Chest Tour Dates
Ricky Skaggs, the 14-time Grammy Award winner, is taking to the road again. The country and bluegrass legend has announced the first handful of dates for his 2011 Treasure Chest Tour.
The set list will feature a mixed bag of Skaggs’ classic country hits and bluegrass tunes. The tour kicks off in Prestonsburg, Kentucky on March 18, with additional dates to be announced in the upcoming weeks. Skaggs will be accompanied by his band, Kentucky Thunder.
"I think fans will really love the fact that I'm taking a full country band out on the road to do '(Honey) Open That Door,' 'You've Got a Lover,' 'Uncle Pen,' 'Highway 40 Blues,' and things like that,” said Skaggs in a statement.
He went on to say,"we’ll be able to do those with the country sound and then do the 'blazing bluegrass' that we've been known for since '97, and then do those new songs from (his 2010 album) 'Mosaic.' I think it's going to be a great show, a great tour, and people are getting really excited about it."
