I hope you’re all having a tremendous week!
Shoot, I can’t calm Jim Ed down. He’s been running around here tickled pink that daylight savings time is just around the corner!
However, I know just the thing to catch his ear and get him to sit still…playing some good ole Bluegrass Music at a a gratuitous volume!
You see, Country Music and Bluegrass have a long history together. Both are distinctly American art forms that were crafted in the imaginations of working class folks darn near a hundred years ago.
Although the two styles would take their own paths, there have been some amazing artists to meld the two over the years. This week’s show is about one such individual, Grand Ole Opry star Mr. Ricky Skaggs!
We’ve got a prime example of that after the jump…..a video of Ricky Skaggs and Brad Paisley singing and picking on one of Ricky’s great hits “Highway 40 Blues.”
(And on the Grad Ole Opry stage, no less!)
Folks, it’s been such an exciting week down here at the Hard Scuffle Studios!
We were absolutely honored to have bluegrass superstars Jaimie Dailey and Darrin Vincent come down to the Ranch to talk with us! These guys were nominated for a Grammy Award just this year for their album that was released by Cracker Barrel Records called The Gospel Side of Dailey And Vincent.
We’re going to be playing plenty of tracks from that album on this weekends show, as well as the guys’ interview with Jim Ed that is just hilarious! These are two genuine and good-hearted folks who truly love what they do!
And trust me…you need to see these boys perform live. They sound incredible and their stage show is uplifting and entertaining…and you wouldn’t be embarrassed to bring your kids or your grandma either! It’s fun for the whole family!
You can find tour dates and more info here on their website!

Have a great week and we’ll see you on the radio!
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
