Former CMA Entertainer of the Year Ricky Skaggs is going to be a busy guy - he  has been named the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's 2013 Artist-in-Residence. That's a pretty big deal, ya'll!

From Music City USA News : Established in 2003, the museum’s residency program annually honors a musical master who may also be credited with contributing a big and demanding body of labor to the canon of yankee popular music. Honorees are given a blank canvas and are encouraged to lend their very own creative brushstrokes to an up-close-and-personal musical experience. Previous Artist-in-Residence honorees include Cowboy Jack Clement, Earl Scruggs, Tom T. Hall, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill, Buddy Miller, Connie Smith and Kenny Rogers.

Congrats to Ricky Skaggs for the honor!
