Grammy Awards[edit]

On Ricky Skaggs's website (http://skaggsfamilyrecords.com/index.htm?id=12253), there's a page that states: "In 1997, after Ricky's then-current recording contract was coming to an end, he made the decision to establish his own record label - Skaggs Family Records. Since then, Skaggs and his band Kentucky Thunder have released an amazing 12 consecutive Grammy-nominated classics (8 of which went on to earn the revered award)." I can only find 7 such awards for Kentucky Thunder, and only 9 (including Salt Of The Earth and Same Old Train) when you add Ricky and his other collaborations into the mix. Anyone have any ideas on the reason for the rather large discrepancy? I'm going with the number from the Grammy website until we have a reason to do otherwise. -Bindingtheory (talk) 16:10, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Members[edit]

This page could use a section on former members of the band. Jim Mills (banjo player) used to play banjo for them, but I couldn't find a list anywhere of other people. Please add if you know who they are or if u feel like going through all the liner notes from their albums. :) -Bindingtheory (talk) 17:12, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
