Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder will be the musical guests on tonight’s (7/22) edition of The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, which airs on CBS at 12:30 a.m. (both Eastern and Pacific time).
They will perform Toy Heart from Honoring The Fathers Of Bluegrass. This CD, released earlier this year, is Ricky’s heartfelt tribute to the men who created bluegrass music in 1946 and ’47 – Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, Chubby Wise, and Howard Watts – who comprised Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys during that period.
UPDATE 1:00 p.m. Thanks to reader Bret Young who reminded us that The Late, Late Show – like almost all of the late night talk shows – actually runs from 12:35-1:35 a.m. Though seemingly a minor difference, it can be very important if you use TiVo or some other video recorder to capture the show, as the musical guests typically appear in the final segment.
