Born blind, Ronnie Milsap discovered music at the North Carolina State School for the Blind, deviating from the school’s classical curriculum to explore the nascent realms of race music, rock ‘n’ roll, and jazz. It wasn’t long until he’d found his way into the local clubs and the tiny indie labels. Suddenly, he was sharing bills with Ray Charles and James Brown on a circuit that included the Howard Theater, the Royal Peacock, and more. Milsap lived in Atlanta, playing clubs and doing sessions. From Atlanta, he moved to Memphis where he was doing sessions with producer/songwriter Chips Moman and stars like Elvis. Charley Pride saw him playing rock and soul and suggested giving Nashville a try. Milsap has racked up forty number one songs and had five decades of charted singles. He broke genre rules and became one of the biggest pop/adult contemporary, rhythm and blues, and country artists of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.
