Ronnie Milsap along with Mac Wiseman and Hank Cochran gained entry into the Country Music Hall of Fame recently.
A trio that included Ronnie Milsap, Mac Wiseman and Hank Cochran got included in the ranks of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Over 121 previous members of the prestigious organization were present when these three also became inductees. Quite a line up was there to entertain everybody, including: Charlie Daniels, Vince Gill, Hunter Hayes, Alison Krauss and Martina McBride.
Daniels especially lauded Mac Wiseman as the man who inspired him in his youth. He said that he had always been enthusiastic about the upcoming singles of the singer in his times and had learnt everything he knew about country music from this man. He went on to perform one of his numbers.
Gill too performed a song by Wiseman. Wiseman, who is 89 years old today, spoke of how he was very happy with being a member of the Hall of Fame. He furthermore said that he could never return back to the music business what it had lent him in terms of fame and fortune.
Cochran, who is no longer with us, had his widow speaking on his behalf. She said that Krauss was a favorite of the late singer. And this was so even though the two had never met each other in person. Meanwhile, Milsap’s 1985 hit got sung towards the end.
Sam Moore recalled how way back in the good old days, though he had not met Milsap, he had heard his song. Moore almost thought that it was Ray Charles that was singing the song. It was only when he actually saw the man at a concert that he for the first time got the shock of a lifetime. He said to someone there that he was a white boy and was not going to make it.
It was a star studded event that had some of the most important luminaries of Nashville country singing present in droves. The occasion demanded some mighty cool performances by singers and songstresses and without a shadow of doubt they got delivered in the most appropriate manner.
