AC hits of Ronnie Milsap 1976-1985

During the years 1976-1985, country singer/pianist artist Ronnie Milsap placed 15 hits on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.  Here's a breakdown table, including year, peak chart position, and number of weeks on the AC charts. The table is followed by a Spotify playlist to help you determine how many tunes you remember.  My personal favorites are marked with a ✔

My wife is a big Ronnie Milsap fan, which makes me one by default.  I'm not one for country music, but I'm familiar with all these tunes because of their crossover success on other charts.  Which means I don't mind listening along with the missus.  I worked on the backstage crew at a Milsap concert around 1990 and found him to be great guy (also taller than I had imagined). His backing band and roadies loved him, which tells you everything you need to know about the man.  He also put on a helluva show.
