At the age of five, he started playing the guitar; at eight, he began playing the bass and at the age of twelve, he picked up the banjo and the fiddle.

Two years later he joined Little Mountain Grass. Ricky is the old man of the group at the age of 40.
________________________________________
Blake, Cliff Waddel, Cliff Smith, and Ricky decided to form the Hagar\'s Mountain Boys while jamming at a local festival. We all had the same idea about how true Bluegrass should sound. With strong harmonies and hard driving instrumentals the band is sure to put a smile on your face while you are listening to that toe-tapping sound!
THE NEW CD IS NOW AVAILABLE!! We are proud to announce the completion of our 2nd album, A Better Way. It features six band originals written by the HMB\'s as well as seven songs you probably haven\'t heard in ages. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Jerry Brown and the the HMB\'s at the Rubber Room studios in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, this album offers the originality we have been searching for as a band since day one. Be listening for the title track A Better Way, written and arranged by the HMB\'s to be released to your local bluegrass station on July 15, 2008 on the Prime Cuts of Bluegrass Volume 94. Be sure to call and request it! We would like to thank all the fans and friends that made this album possible, and first and foremost our Lord for blessing us with album #2, A Better Way

A Better Way
I heard these guys play at a fundrasiser in Ohio and I knew I had to buy the album! I rarely purchase albums because too often I only like one or two cuts, but this isn\'t the case here. I liked every one of these songs and can\'t wait to hear more from you guys. Way to go RickyRox, Cliff, Cliff & Blake! Count me as one of your fans!

A Better Way
I have seen and heard these guys several times. They get better each time. If you get a chance to see them GO. Good music and hard driving.
