To begin with, the boy was born blind because of glaucoma, and was raised by grandparents as he was abandoned by his mother, believing that this was a punishment from God. As a child, he relied on his musical talent and received an education in classical music. His real interest, however, was country music and later the rock’ n’ roll. During his school years, he formed his first band.

Moreover, Milsap entered the music scene as a member of the successful band of JJ Cale. A little later he formed his own group, which played a mix of country and blues, and in the late 1960s it was known for a minor hit “Never Had It So Good”, which was the base for his net worth.

In 1969, he moved with his band to Memphis, where he worked as a studio musician. Among other things, he took part in the recordings of Elvis Presley, and also had regular appearances in a local club. In 1970, he recorded the single “Loving You Is a Natural Thing” which appeared on the Billboard Top 100, and a year later, he released his first album called “Ronnie Milsap” (1971).

In 1973, Milsap moved to Nashville, the centre of country music, where he worked with the manager Jack D. Johnson; the same year he received a recording contract from RCA. The first single “I Hate You” (1973) released under the previously mentioned label made it into the top ten of the country charts. The following year he scored three consecutive number one singles: “Pure Love”, “Please, Don’t Tell Me How the Story Ends” and “(I’d Be) A Legend in My Time” – it was the time when country music dominated over the mainstream and pop sounds, and so Milsap rose to fame, releasing a series of 40 number one singles, some of which listed in the pop charts too. Moreover, his albums achieved gold status five times, and he won among others six Grammy Awards as the Best Country Singer. What is more, he became the CMA Entertainer of the Year. All these achievements benefited his net worth.

In 1988, Milsap had to undergo vocal cord surgery, but recovered without complications. His sales figures gradually subsided, however. As country music became less interesting for audiences, Ronnie Milsap oriented himself towards pop music, and his arrangements were fuller. In 1990, his two greatest hits albums were certified platinum. After a few flops, he moved to Liberty Records in 1992, but again he could not build on the earlier successes.

Finally, in the personal life of the singer, Ronnie married Joyce Milsap in 1965; they have one child.
