Ricky Skaggs Celebrates With A...

Recently, Ricky Skaggs celebrated 30 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. I happened to be backstage that night (an experience that just makes me giddy!) and got to see how a legendary musician celebrates- with his very own mandolin cake!


Now THAT'S what I call a cake!
  
Yes folks, that is, in fact a mandolin cake! It looks so real doesn't it?!? Right down to the wood coloring. And, you know me, I could resist trying it! The strings looked like real nylon, but they tasted like homemade suckers.

Ricky performed with his band Kentucky Thunder as well as Alison Kraus and Keith and Kristyn Getty. I had chills!!! In a very personal moment in front of a sold-out Opry crowd, Ricky bore a heartfelt testimony about the Savior- giving credit to God for every gift in his life.

I can't wait to see what the next 30 years brings for Ricky on the Opry stage!
