Sunglasses worn by Ronnie Milsap on the cover of his 1993 album, True Believer.
Born in North Carolina 1943
Ronnie Milsap received classical music training as a child at North Carolina’s State School for the Blind. By the time the well-traveled musician moved to Nashville, in 1972, he already had R&B and pop hits under his belt. In 1974, “Pure Love” became the first of thirty-five #1 hits that kept Milsap’s up-tempo country-pop sound high in the charts for the next fifteen years.
