    Country and Bluegrass music legend Ricky Skaggs will headline the 15th Annual Concert for Cumberland Heights with acclaimed trio The Whites, which includes his wife Sharon, sister-in-law Cheryl, and father-in-law Buck White. The evening will be a holiday-themed, variety-style show titled “A Skaggs Family Christmas,” featuring both holiday classics and new Christmas music from the celebrated musical clan and bringing together the love of family and the beauty of song for a great cause.

    "It's really great to be coming back to my favorite venue, the Ryman, to do our Skaggs Family Christmas show and especially getting to partner with Cumberland Heights," said Skaggs. "This will be a very special event that you won't want to miss."

    A 14-time GRAMMY winner, Skaggs is perhaps best known for his masterful mandolin playing and his timeless Bluegrass albums, including Bluegrass Rules!, Big Mon: The Songs of Bill Monroe, Salt of the Earth with The Whites, and Honoring the Fathers of Bluegrass: Tribute to 1946 and 1947. Skaggs also enjoyed a thriving mainstream Country career, and in 1982, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry, the youngest to ever be inducted at that time. In 1985, he earned the Entertainer of the Year Award from the Country Music Association (CMA).

    One of Country music’s finest and most beloved family harmony groups, The Whites, have enjoyed a prolific music career that has spanned the past four decades. Buck White (vocals, piano, mandolin), Sharon (vocals, guitar) and Cheryl (vocals, bass) officially comprise the group which originally started out as a Bluegrass group, but the family trio became well known for its string of Country hits in the 1980s culminating in their induction as Opry members in 1984. They were involved in the 2001 hit movie and soundtrack, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and have gone on to win multiple awards, including GRAMMY, CMA and Dove Awards, among others.

    The evening's special guests include Steven Curtis Chapman and Emmylou Harris.
