Ronnie Milsap to Be Honored With Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit
Ronnie Milsap is the latest artist to be honored with his own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. 'Ronnie Milsap: A Legend in My Time' will open on Feb. 6, covering Milsap's legendary career.
The exhibit will feature the singer's extraordinary body of work, from his early career working for Elvis Presley in Memphis, Tenn., to his signing with RCA Records, where he released more than 20 albums.
To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, Milsap will appear at the museum for 'Conversations With Ronnie Milsap,' a discussion with journalist Peter Cooper about his career and personal struggles -- including his abandonment as a child, how he dealt with his lifelong blindness and his numerous career achievements -- on Feb. 7.
The 71-year-old is currently crossing the country on what he says will be his final tour.
“You get to a place where you still have your health, but you know it’s not given,” he explains. “I’ve been blessed with so many great songs, so many wonderful memories and stories -- and some of the very best fans in the business. Before I get to a place where it’s not a celebration of the music, I want to go out and play all these hits for the people who love them as much as I do.”
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is located at 222 5th Ave. South in Nashville, Tenn. More information on 'Ronnie Milsap: A Legend in My Time' can be found here.
