Banjo For A Desert Island

Some of us would want ESPN on a desert island, others their favorite albums. Jim Mills would take a banjo, one of his many banjos. Nashville knows Jim Mills as one of the top banjo pickers in bluegrass. He's considered a worthy heir to the pickin' style popularized by his hero, Earl Scruggs. During his 14 years touring with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, Mills shared in no fewer than five Grammy awards.  We have a portrait now of Jim Mills in his own words.
