Megan Darby, Director of GSC's Bluegrass Music Degree Program, the Initially, the Flatt and Scruggs band was formed by Flatt who had previ- ously played with Bill Monroe. With Flatt's rhythm guitar, Scruggs' unique banjo leads, and their combined vocal strength, the Foggy Mountain Boys steadily gained popularity and over time arguably became the most fa- mous bluegrass band of all time.

(Riley), Summer Mays (Peg), Kodie world's first such Bachelor of Arts Degree, says, "It is important to honor those musicians that are significant to creating the traditional bluegrass sound. After the recent passing of the legendary Earl Scuggs, I decided it was time to honor him along with his playing partner, Letter Flatt." "Unfortunately, Don and Danny Clark, who own the bus, just notified me that its transmission has broken down and it will not be able to make the trip at this time," Darby added, "However, the Clarks will be coming along with very special Flatt and Scruggs memorabilia and will still be in the GSC Fine Arts Center lobby to meet and greet the public from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. They will also tell the story of the bus between two 45- minute musical sets." 1955, Flatt and Scruggs became regu- lar members of the Grand Ole Opry. Later in 1963, Ftatt and Scruggs played 'The Ballad of Jed Clampett,' in the TV sitcom, 'The Beverly Hill- billies:' The show's theme song be- came the first bluegrass song to reach number one in the country charts and only one other has made it to the top in the past fifty years. In 1967 their music was the background for the movie 'Bonnie and Clyde,' and more recently, as a fitting tribute to their contribution to all music, the band formed by the heroes in the hit film 'O Brother, Where Art Thou' called their group the 'Soggy Bot- tom Boys.' Flatt and Scruggs were elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1985.
