“As a boy from Kentucky who grew up on Bluegrass music, to get to make a Bluegrass record with some of the best musicians in the world and have my dad, my brother, my son, Ricky Skaggs and Gary Levox sing on it with me…that was a dream come true. To have that record be nominated for a Grammy…I couldn’t even dream up something that amazing! I’m so honored and so grateful!” exclaimed Chapman.
