Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. He also 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.
His track record speaks loud and clear: 40 # 1 hits, Over 25 million records sold, seven Grammy Awards, four Academy of Country Music Awards, and eight Country Music Association Awards. Together, they underscore Milsap’s position as one of the best-loved and most enduring artists in country music history. The eternally optimistic Milsap forges ahead, positive about what the future may hold. That spirit not only comes through in his music but uniquely in his new recording - Then Sings My Soul - 24 Favorite Hymns & Gospel Songs. The first time Milsap has ventured into the gospel roots he grew up with at the Missionary Primitive Baptist Church in the North Carolina Hills. An ambitious project produced by Grammy-nominated long-time Milsap producer, Rob Galbraith - these 24 brand new recordings – of classic songs that have stood the test of time.
