WASHINGTON (December 20, 2013) Grammy-winning bluegrass musician Ricky Skaggs says God is his inspiration and constant companion.
Skaggs told reporters at the National Press Club he believes "God is the greatest songwriter ever" and "the best musician ever."
"Learning to walk with him and talk with him, pray with him, listen to him - that's just where life is,” he said.
Skaggs was in Washington to perform for injured troops at the Interfaith Holiday Gala Benefit for the Wounded Warriors.
"It's just a good thing to serve those who serve us,” he said.
Skaggs describes his faith and musical journey in his recently released autobiography, "Kentucky Traveler."
