On this date in 2014, a man who deserves more credit finally got some.

Ronnie Milsap was inducted to the Country Music Hall of fame on October 26th, 2014, along side Hank Cochran and Mac Wiseman.

Among his career accomplishments are 35 #1s (fourth to only George Strait, Conway Twitty and Merle Haggard), 6 Grammys, 4 ACMs, 8 CMAs and 35 million albums sold.

His biggest hits include “Smoky Mountain Rain,” “Stranger In My House,” “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It For The World,” and “No Gettin’ Over Me,” which were some of the biggest songs of the early ’80s.

Even at the age of 78, Ronnie is still active, having released a full-studio album earlier this year titled Wild Honey.  

Cheers to a legend.
