It’s a return to country music.
Back in the ’80s there was a theme of over glossy country music. Some didn’t like the direction. Others loved the era. Looking back it’s hard to believe anyone could dislike the country music of the ’80s – Dolly Parton, Dan Seals, Restless Heart, Kenny Roger, Ronnie Milsap, and others. It’s a joy listening to those songs and one of the biggest artists of the time is back with some new country music.
Ronnie Milsap has a new song and video out. It’s worth 3 minutes of your time…
If You Don’t Want Me To – Ronnie Milsap
You could put this song on any classic country station and think the DJ had found a classic Ronnie Milsap song. It’s perfect. The first few times I heard this song I thought it was unbelievable how good Ronnie sounded. It was like he went back and found an old recording from 1981. The man still has it and we’re fortunate to have him still releasing new music in 2011.
The piano is there like always. Ronnie’s voice is spectacular. The song is stellar. In fact, the song – [easyazon-link asin=”B005C7NXUK”]If You Don’t Want Me To[/easyazon-link] – is so good I’m hoping it gets some recognition from radio and from the award shows. I don’t know if that will happen. It’s difficult for older artists to find their way onto radio. Some artists, like Kenny Rogers, are able to find success into their 50s and 60s. Ronnie Milsap is certainly worthy of a few spins at the radio station.
The song is about a woman that keeps teasing a man. She doesn’t even realize how gorgeous she is. This guy is head over heels for her. She doesn’t want to accept the advances and maybe she really doesn’t realize what she’s doing to this guy. He thinks all the signs are there, but she remains without interest.
Isn’t that the way it goes sometimes, guys?
We always read women the wrong way. It’s the way life is I guess.
Ronnie Milsap is back in country music. He’s been busy the last few years releasing music and touring. In fact, he never really left country music. He’s been making great songs for the last twenty years, but people haven’t been taking notice.
Hopefully that all changes with [easyazon-link asin=”B005C7NXUK”]If You Don’t Want Me To[/easyazon-link] – one of the best songs of 2011.
