My Life

My Life

by Ronnie Milsap

CD

Overview

Back on the label where he writ his legend large in country history, Ronnie Milsap hasn't lost a stride. Teamed with Alan Jackson's great producer, Keith Stegall, Milsap puts his own stamp on 11 tunes in various styles. Equally at home with R&B, mainstream country, and rock 'n' roll (his studio credits include work with Elvis Presley), the Man Behind the Grand shows off a rich baritone voice every bit as strong as it was in his hit-making heyday, and with it a soul as deep and expressive as any singer's out there. The heartrending breakup ballad "If It's Gonna Rain," gives Milsap a chance to explore the high and low ranges of his voice for dramatic effect. The title song, "My Life," is an atmospheric treatise, slow and deliberate, in which Milsap roars into a triumphant, self-affirming chorus that's the country equivalent of "My Way." A staccato litany of the daily grind ("We punch in, then lunch it, then punch out again / Rush home to clean up the messes we left"), "A Day in the Life of America" belongs in a time capsule as a document of how we lived at a particular moment. Add in some grinding southern funk by way of "You Don't Know My Love" and a taste of contemporary honky-tonk in the stomping, soaring "Accept My Love," and it's clear Ronnie Milsap, gifted vocal stylist and stylish piano pounder, is at the top of his game.
