One of the most awarded artists in all of country music, Ricky Skaggs will join Mark on Wednesday morning (9/26) at 9:10 on KXRB for a live interview. Another special segment of "Mark Talking With The Legends".

We are very proud to have this artist coming to perform here in Sioux Falls. Ricky was recently inducted into The Gospel Music Hall Of Fame and just received "The Pioneer Award" from The Academy Of Country Music.

Another great honor for him involves The Grand Ole Opry. A major celebration is coming up there and Ricky is a huge part of it.

A host of country stars will perform at the Grande Ole Opry's 87th Birthday Concert including Jason Aldean, Jimmy Dickens, Rodney Atkins and Steve Wariner. The two-day celebration with concerts, games and food will start on Oct. 5 with a kick-off party.

The headline show starring Ricky Skaggs will be held the following day. I congratulate Ricky for this wonderful milestone in his life and I am really anxious to talk with him on my show. Please join me.
