“I was sad when I heard about the passing of my friend Jimmy Capps. What a shock. I loved him very much. A historic, amazing musician of the Nashville sound for many years. His back up fills on Country songs was just right, always!! He had forgotten more history about Nashville music and the musicians who played it than most people will ever know. A tremendous loss for Nashville and our Grand Ole Opry family. Rest In Peace brother. Much love and sympathy to Jimmy’s wife Michelle and the rest of the family.”–Ricky Skaggs
