Ricky Skaggs - The High Notes

Ricky Skaggs - The High Notes

Ricky Skaggs covers his greatest country music hits in bluegrass style on this special recording to be available exclusively through all Cracker Barrel stores.

"I have wanted to record bluegrass versions of my Number One country hits for a long time," Skaggs said. "It's so great to sing these hit songs again. Many of them I haven't sung since the 1990s, and I think the bluegrass tracks came out better than the originals. This project was a lot of fun to do, and I'm so pleased Cracker Barrel asked me to work with them."

I Wouldn't Change You If I Could
