Ronnie Milsap Celebrated With RCA Albums Collection
Sony Music’s catalog division, Legacy Recordings, is set to release a 21-disc collection in honor of Ronnie Milsap.
The collection will feature all of Milsap’s original RCA recordings, including some albums that have never been released on CD. The set seeks to celebrate Milsap’s genre-bending sound during the ’70s and ’80s.
“I wanted to make music,” Milsap says. “And I knew music expands and embraces all kinds of things. Soul and country aren’t that different at the root, and my career in Nashville was a lot about that common ground.”
Milsap had 48 consecutive singles hit the Billboard Country Top 10 between 1974 and 1991, 40 of which hit the No. 1 slot. He has also taken home six Grammys and won four CMA Album of the Year Awards.
This year, Milsap will be one of three artists to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He is also set to receive the ACM’s Career Achievement Award at their ACM Honors ceremony on Sept. 9.
The albums collection is set for release on Nov. 4.
“The idea that all the music I made for RCA will be available in one place thrills me,” Milsap says. “It is my life’s work. These songs and the record I made are a big piece of who I am — and the people who loved them. I feel honored to know the RCA collection is coming.”
