About this Episode

Ricky Skaggs and Keith Whitley were only 17 years old when they recorded Second Generation Bluegrass. Both went on to be country megastars – until Whitley died of alcohol poisoning at 34. Bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs joins us to explain how two teenagers managed to perfectly replicate the bygone sound of the Stanley Brothers – and share his final moments with Keith.
