Cody Kilby, lead guitarist for Ricky Skaggs’ Kentucky Thunder Band is a musical prodigy. He had a Gibson endorsement on banjo at the age of 13, and by 17 he was the National Flatpicking Champion. In his teans he also added dobro and mandolin to his arsenal. Bruce Hornsby calls him “a freak of nature” and Ricky Skaggs says “he’s something special” and “plays some of the best guitar solos I’ve heard in Bluegrass Music.”
