Some of you may have caught Don Rigsby’s appearance last night on the ABC-TV reality series Six Degrees of Separation. The concept behind the series is that anyone is only six steps away from contacting anyone else on the planet. Last night’s show featured Martina McBride as the celebrity the contestants were supposed to approach. The winner would receive a recording contract in Nashville, and the opportunity to perform on stage with McBride.
One of the contestants had a friend who led him to Sandy Knipp, a radio DJ in Morehead, KY. Knipp hosts Bluegrass Diversions, a weekly bluegrass radio show on WMKY-FM, 90.3. Knipp led the contestant to Rigsby, who took them to Nashville.
