Earl Scruggs


kraj: USA
gatunek: country, Bluegrass
dekady: 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000
Amerykański piosenkarz country. Zasłynął między innymi z nietypowego sposobu gry na banjo.

Wokalista urodził się Shelby w Północnej Karolinie w U.S.A Na banjo zaczął grać w wieku czterech lat. Początkowo używał tylko dwóch palców do gry. W wieku trzech lat opracował styl wykorzystujący trzy palce. Ten styl gry na instrumencie stał się znany na całym świecie jako „Scruggs-Style Picking”.

Pod koniec 1945 roku piosenkarz dołączył do grupy „Blue Grass Boys”. Po trzech latach jako spełniony muzyk grupy „Blue Grass Boys” Scruggs i gitarzysta zespołu „Monroe's” Lester Flatt założyli duet „Flatt and Scruggs”. Grali razem do 1969 roku. Po rozpadzie duetu Scruggs wraz ze swoimi synami założył zespół Earl Scruggs Revue.

12 października 1962 roku została wydana piosenka „The Ballad of Jed Clampett”, którą wokalista nagrał wraz z Jerrym Scogginsem oraz Lestrem Flattem. Był to kawałek nagrany do telewizyjnego show The Beverly Hillbillies. Utwór natychmiast stał się ogromnym hitem, był grany zarówno na początku jak i na końcu programu.

W 1969 roku Flatt and Scruggs otrzymali nagrodę Grammy za instrumentalne nagranie „Foggy Mountain Breakdown”.

13 lutego 2003 roku wokalista otrzymał własną gwiazdę na Hollywood Walk of Fame. W tym samym roku on i Flaut znaleźli się w rankingu 40 Najlepszych Muzyków Country.

Za oficjalny debiutancki album wokalisty uważa się „Changin' Times” nagrany w 1969 roku, chociaż oczywiście wokalista wcześniej wydawał płyty wraz z zespołami, w których występował.
