Thanks for checking out the 203rd episode of The ETX ROCKS Show! In this episode we introduce to our audience a brand new guest host and a new segment called “Wednesday’s With Will McPherson! His guest on his first interview with us started his music career somewhere around 1973. Originally from Robbinsville, NC, he is a 6 time Grammy Award winner and has accrued 40 Number 1 hits throughout his career, 3rd only behind George Strait and Conway Twitty in the history of Country Music. Ronnie Milsap is a 2014 inductee into The Country Music Hall of Fame and we are thrilled to present this in depth look at a musical genius. From his upbringing in music all the way to the 21st century, Will covers it all in this insightful conversation with one of the true icons of our generation! Thank you Ronnie Milsap for being our guest on The ETX ROCKS Show!

Those formative teenage years set a tone for an entire lifetime. Personal battles, career goals, ideas about love – figuring out how all of that will play out during adulthood is one of the big chores of those high-school years. Setting the backdrop for much of that inner struggle is the music – it’s the soundtrack of one’s identity, the bond that glues generations.

That idea is at the heart of Ronnie Milsap’s Summer #17, an album that explores the influences on a musician who built a Hall of Fame-caliber career, who became one of the most influential voices in country music’s storied history.

Much has been made about how such new country acts as Eric Church, The Band Perry and Luke Bryan have fused elements of pop music’s past with the country core to create a new wave of sound. But Milsap set the standard for thinking outside of country’s proverbial box.
