Ricky Skaggs and Bruce Hornsby’s reuniting is proving to be another major success for the two musical icons. Yesterday Skaggs and Hornsby learned that Cluck Ol’ Hen released on August 20) debuted at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Album Chart, soaring past its competition.
“My, how times are changin’” says Skaggs upon hearing the news. “I’m really glad about this and I’m sure Bruce is too!”
Cluck Ol’ Hen is a fresh collection of songs from the masterful duo of Skaggs and Hornsby. The live tunes were originally recorded when the two music icons hit the tour circuit in support of their first collaborative album, Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby. Hornsby’s spirited piano brings a new dimension to these songs, with electrifying solos and improvisation thrown in the mix of Skaggs, Hornsby and Skaggs’ band, Kentucky Thunder.
