Ricky Skaggs has announced the first dates of his 2011 Treasure Chest Tour, which will feature songs old and new, including a mix of Skaggs’ classic country hits as well as a collection of his famous bluegrass tunes. The tour kicks off in Prestonsburg, Kentucky, on March 18, with additional dates to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
"I think fans will really love the fact that I’m taking a full country band out on the road to do ‘(Honey) Open That Door,’ ‘You’ve Got a Lover’ … ‘Uncle Pen,’ ‘Highway 40 Blues,’ and things like that" explains Skaggs. "We’ll be able to do those with the country sound and then do the ‘blazing bluegrass’ that we’ve been known for since ’97, and then do those new songs from Mosaic. I think it’s going to be a great show, a great tour, and people are getting really excited about it, so we’re excited about it."
