Juli Thanki | March 13th, 2014

ronniemilsapsummerFrom our pals at Legacy Recordings: “Ronnie Milsap, six-time Grammy-winning icon, releases Summer Number Seventeen on Tuesday (March 18) – a homage to the various styles of music that shaped his singularly bluesy take on modern country, the 12 song collection is defined by his instinctive keyboard playing and soulful vocals. Pick up Summer Number Seventeen Tuesday.”

They’ve sent over five copies of Milsap’s new CD to give to some lucky E145 readers. If you haven’t heard of this project, here’s an interview we did with Ronnie a few weeks ago; the post also includes one of the tracks from the new record, Milsap’s cover of Hank Williams’ “I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love with You).”

    It’s gotta be “Pure Love” – how can you not like a song that has a line in it that goes

    ‘… milk and honey and Captain Krunch and you in the morning … ‘

    Ater that it would be “Stand By My Woman Man” or “Houston Solution”

    “Just in Case”, or maybe “Smokey Mountain Rain”, from a Twitter follower.

    “Smoky Mountain Rain” is a perennial favorite of mine, as it’s the first Milsap song I remember liking, but lately I’ve been playing “Daydreams About Night Things” a lot as well.
