WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Music legend Ricky Skaggs is coming to FoxTale Book Shoppe on his Kentucky Traveler book tour on Tuesday, August 27 at 7 p.m.

In Kentucky Traveler, Ricky Skaggs, the music legend who revived modern bluegrass music, gives a warm, honest, one-of-a-kind memoir of forty years in music—along with the Ten Commandments of Bluegrass, as handed down by Ricky’s mentor Bill Monroe; the Essential Guide to Bedrock Country Songs, a lovingly compiled walk through the songs that have moved Skaggs the most throughout his life; Songs the Lord Taught Us, a primer on Skaggs’s most essential gospel songs; and a bevy of personal snapshots of his musical heroes.

For readers of Johnny Cash’s autobiography, lovers of O Brother Where Art Thou, and fans of country music and bluegrass, Kentucky Traveler is a priceless look at America’s most cherished and vibrant musical tradition through the eyes of someone who has lived it.

This is a ticketed event. The $28 ticket includes a 1st edition of KENTUCKY TRAVELER and the opportunity for you and one companion to meet Skaggs and have your book(s) signed. You will pick your book up at the event. You can purchase a ticket online at www.foxtalebookshoppe.com or stop at the store. Your PayPal receipt is your ticket, so bring it with you to the event. You must purchase a ticket to attend. Multiple tickets may be purchased and additional books will be for sale August 27th. Only those books purchased from FoxTale will be allowed in with you.
