CELEBRITY WEEKEND CONCERT SERIES: RONNIE MILSAP
Time & Location
About The Event
Milsap had been living music almost from the start. Born in Robbinsville, North Carolina, at the edge of the Smoky Mountains, he was enveloped in his early years by country – the region was crucial to such history-makers as Jimmie Rodgers, Chet Atkins and Dolly Parton. Milsap subsequently received classical training at the Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, though he notoriously frustrated his teachers by banging out Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard rock & roll on the keyboard when he was supposed to be practicing Mozart and Beethoven.
Milsap nabbed at least one Top 10 single annually for 20 straight years. Those songs connected him to some of the most significant writers of his generation – Kris Kristofferson ("Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends"), Burt Bacharach ("Any Day Now"), Eddie Rabbitt ("Pure Love"), Don Gibson ("I'd Be A Legend In My Time"), Mike Reid ("Inside," "Stranger In My House"), Archie Jordan ("It Was Almost Like A Song") and Hank Cochran ("Don't You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me"), to name just a handful.
What the kids are doing today in redefining country is nothing new. They're simply carrying on a master plan Milsap laid down years ago.
