Ricky Skaggs ‘I Wouldn’t Change You If I Could’ K-LAW Classic [VIDEO]

When Ricky Skaggs was 5 his dad gave him a mandolin. He’s been playing music ever since. When he was 6 he played mandolin and sang on stage with bluegrass legend Bill Monroe. By age 7 he was on TV’s Martha White country music variety show, playing with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. Then, in his mid teens, he met fellow teen prodigy Keith Whitley. They ended up playing in Ralph Stanley’s band, the Clinch Mountain Boys. After a stint in Emmylou Harris’s Hot Band, Ricky embarked on a solo career. He was only in his mid to late 20′s when he released his solo first album for Epic records in 1981, but he had over 20 years of playing experience.

His fourth #1 song, ‘I Wouldn’t Change You If I Could’, came 30 years ago – March 19th, 1983. The video below shows Ricky performing the song with his wife of more than 30 years, Sharon, and the rest of The Whites.
