Ricky and Sharon White-Skaggs commit to Music City Obama extravaganza; Kennedy Center honoree Dr. Bobby Jones to serve as emcee

The Rev. Enoch Fuzz has pulled off another miracle of coalition-building by recruiting three major headliners for a Nashville and Music City inaugural gala to celebrate the presidency of change of Barack Obama on the evening of Jan. 20, 2009.

Country music icon and 10-time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs will help entertain the gathering that will be emceed by the Dr. Bobby Jones, 2007 Kennedy Center honoree and Gospel music legend.

Sharon White-Skaggs -- who is part of the famous entertainers The Whites -- will serve as co-chair of the event with Fuzz. She and Skaggs married in 1982 and their families still perform often together. Ricky and Sharon-White Skaggs won the Country Music Duo of the Year Award in 1987.

"We did not support President Obama, but he's our president now," Fuzz quoted White- Skaggs as saying. "It's a wonderful event, and I'm telling everyone about it."
