        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. As a country music singer and pianist, Milsap was one of country's most popular and influential artists in the 1970s and '80s. He became country music's first blind superstar, and one of the most talented and versatile vocalists of all time, flirting with many musical styles rarely attempted by mainstream country performers, including pop ballads, rock n' roll, R&B, blues, doo wop, disco, funk, and gospel. He was one of the most successful country crossover singers of his time, appealing to both country and pop markets with hit singles that incorporated pop, R&B, and rock n' roll influences. He is credited with six Grammy awards and 40 number one hits in country music, third only to George Strait and Conway Twitty.

        While looking back at the enormous impact he had on country music, Milsap insists on looking ahead as well. "I've been very fortunate to have had a lot of successful records," he says. "Now its time to make some more."
