Bluegrass Music ProfilesThe Jan/Feb issue of Bluegrass Music Profiles features a cover story interview with Ricky Skaggs where he discusses the first time he and Keith Whitley met The Stanley Brothers, the day he witnessed Bill Monroe and Lester Flatt perform together again at Bean Blossom in the early seventies following a 20-plus year feud, and what bluegrass groups and CDs he’s currently listening to.

Referring to his catalog of music, Ricky said:

"There’s a lot of great music in the past that I’m very proud of but I just feel like I haven’t even hit my stride yet. I’m 54 and I’m looking for more."

You’ll also find a DJ Profile with Pete Hart, a Q&A with Tim Hensley, coverage of the Vicki Simmons Benefit Concert in Renfro Valley, KY, a ShopTalk with Jerry Douglas, Junior Sisk’s Bluegrass Favorites, a Promoter Profile with the Florida Bluegrass Festival’s Dawn Taylor, a Songwriter Profile with High Windy’s Patrick McDougal, as well as the 2009 Annual Festival Guide.
