Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Ricky Skaggs and his band Kentucky Thunder took 2018 CMA Awards viewers on a journey from one classic song to another, starting with “Black Eyed Suzie” before Keith Urban and John Osborne made a surprise appearance for “Highway 40 Blues.” Skaggs and band were then joined by young instrumentalists Sierra Hull on mandolin and Carson Peters on fiddle.

“Country Boy” Lyrics

I may look like a city slicker,
Shinin’ up through his shoes.
Underneath I’m just a cotton picker,
Pickin’ out a mess of blues.

Show me where I start.
Find a horse and cart.
I’m just a country boy,
Country boy at heart.

I may look like a bank teller,
Pushing facts in a file.
But I’d rather be a haul collar,
Shooing foot home in style.

Show me where I start.
Find a horse and cart.
I’m just a country boy,
Country boy at heart.

I may look like a city slicker,
Shinin’ up through his shoes.
Underneath I’m just a cotton picker,
Pickin’ out a mess of blues.

Show me where I start.
Find a horse and cart.
I’m just a country boy,
Country boy at heart.
