Almost Like a Song
From dust jacket notes: "Ronnie Milsap's life is a classic rags-to-riches tale. Today he is one of the hottest country 'crossover' singers in the nation, with six Grammy awards, twenty million records sold, and thirty-five number-one hits (more than any other RCA recording star, including Elvis Presley). But Milsap's early life was a different story. Born blind and raised in abject poverty by a mother who soon rejected him as a curse, the boy was sent to a school for the blind where the students were beaten to instill discipline. But at that school he was also taught music and how to play the piano - not the Scruggs and Flatt hillbilly music of his own Smoky Mountains, but Bach and Mozart. In the 1970s, Milsap began an uncertain career singing in honky-tonk nightclubs in Memphis and Nashville, where he came to the attention of Elvis Presley. By 1976 Milsap was headlining his own show and touring the world's concert halls. A year later, one of his hit records was named Album of the Year, and he himself was voted Entertainer of the Year, and Male Vocalist of the Year. The singer has been a mega-star ever since...."
