Share your thoughts on Earl Scruggs

Given the popularity of the many touching tributes to Earl Scruggs we have published this past week (with more to come), it seemed fitting that we give our readers a chance to weigh in as well. Those that knew him well have shared their direct experiences with Earl, but we know that his millions of fans and admirers also have stories to tell.

To that end, we have created a special permanent page at Bluegrass Today where reader tributes will be archived.

You are all invited to contribute your own thoughts, be they simple words of condolence, personal anecdotes or remembrances, or more detailed observations about how Earl and his banjo have shaped your own musical journey. All these are part of the history of the man who changed the banjo, and we hope that you will add them to the record.

To weigh in on Earl’s legacy, visit this page and tell us what Earl Scruggs meant to you.
