    Default Ricky Skaggs receives Presidential Medal of the Arts.

    Well, who would have thought that Ricky Skaggs and Toby Keith would get the same award?

    Go figure, but good for Ricky.

    Thank you, person in the White House who thought to honor a mandolin picker.

    I'm not sure I understand the popcorn GIF reaction. I'm not a troll and just posting legitimate mandolin-player news. I one thing I think most folks on this board would agree on is that Ricky Skaggs is a respectable choice for an arts award.

    Now, if I was POTUS, I'd establish the National Medal for the Mandolin Arts, perhaps even a series of them- let's call them the Jethro Awards- but alas, I'm not.
