It’s rare that an artist, with more than four decades of accolades to his credit would continue to seek out new challenges, but that’s precisely what country soul legend Ronnie Milsap has done with Then Sings My Soul: 24 Favorite Hymns and Gospel Favorites, his first foray into gospel music. Milsap went back to the deep, rich, gospel tradition of hymns like Holy Holy Holy and Amazing Grace , transported himself to more modern times for a sweetly soulful People Get Ready that would surely elicit a smile from author Curtis Mayfield. Sonically, the repertoire runs the gamut from the storefront-church rollick of Swing Down Chariot to the stately elegance of Rock of Ages .
He’d go on to top the country chart more than a dozen times in the e70s, with such enduring hits as Let My Love Be Your Pillow and What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life . His peers responded just as strongly as the public, awarding Milsap six Grammys and a dozen CMA Awards, including four turns as Male Vocalist of the Year.
And even with 40 #1 chart-toppers under his belt — not to mention avidly-received live shows across the world, Ronnie Milsap is still growing and surprising long-time fans.
