Ronnie Milsap, known for timeless classics such as “Smoky Mountain Rain” and “It Was Almost Like a Song,” performs to a sold out crowd at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on November 4th.
With 40 number one hits, seven Grammy® awards and eight Country Music Association Awards, Ronnie Milsap has earned a reputation as one of the most versatile country crossover singers of his time, and ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. Hits such as “Any Day Now,” “Lost in the Fifties Tonight,” “It Was Almost Like a Song,” and “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It For the World” have made Milsap one of the best-loved and most enduring artists in Country music history.
Ronnie Milsap represents much more than any two-word definition can convey: a humble, overtly friendly fellow with a talent as vast and multi-dimensional as the American South. Milsap provided Country music with one of its most important voices, as the genre was moving beyond its rural roots into the mainstream of modern entertainment and then pushed them further with songs like “Day Dreams About Night Things” and “Pure Love.” Steeped in the mountain music of the North Carolina hills and schooled in classical piano, Milsap early in life found inspiration in a wide variety of music. Even as he mastered Beethoven and Mozart, his heart belonged to hard-core country and rhythm-and-blues — music he heard beamed from powerful radio stations located in Nashville.
