Ricky Skaggs solo stream on iLike

Ricky Skaggs - Songs My Dad LovedThe folks at Skaggs Family Records have created a free streaming site on iLike for the upcoming Ricky Skaggs CD, Solo – Songs My Dad Loved.

You can listen to all 13 tracks in full on iLike until the release date of September 15, and be entered to win valuable prizes by pre-ordering the new album online. The winner will receive:

  • Tickets for two to any 2009 Ricky Skaggs concert (US only)
  • An exclusive “meet and greet” with Ricky at the show
  • A $50 Visa gift card

The CD is Skaggs’ first true solo project, with Ricky playing all the instruments and singing all the parts. The music is as much old time as it is bluegrass, reminiscent of the wonderful album he did with Tony Rice back in 1980, Skaggs & Rice.

Great stuff!
