Ricky Skaggs will headline the 15th Annual Concert for Cumberland Heights benefiting the John Hiatt Fund for Adolescent Treatment on December 6 at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The Whites, which includes Ricky’s wife Sharon, sister-in-law Cheryl, and father-in-law Buck White, will join him.

The night will be a holiday-themed variety show called ‘A Skaggs Family Christmas’ and feature both holiday classics and new Christmas music. The concert is the Ryman’s longest running benefit concert series. Tickets are now on sale at, the Ryman box office and all Ticketmaster outlets.

“It’s really great to be coming back to my favorite venue, the Ryman, to do our Skaggs Family Christmas show and especially getting to partner with Cumberland Heights,” said Skaggs.  “This will be a very special event that you won’t want to miss.”

“We are honored that Ricky and his family have signed on to celebrate this milestone fundraiser for such an important program at Cumberland Heights,” said Cumberland Heights CEO Jim Moore.  “This fund has helped us shape our adolescent program into one of the best in the country.”

Since 1996, the annual Concert for Cumberland Heights has raised more than $1.8 million for the John Hiatt Fund for Adolescent Treatment. Singer/songwriter John Hiatt will host the event and share his own story of recovery from alcohol and drug abuse to inspire others.
