Ronnie Milsap's Upcoming The Duets Album To Feature Willie, Musgraves, Dolly, Aldean, Strait, Little Big Town & More

Artist: Ronnie Milsap
Album: The Duets
Label: Riser House Records
Release date: January 18, 2019

Ronnie Milsap is using a little help from his friends with a project of duets on some of his biggest hits that will feature duets with Kacey Musgraves, Billy Gibbons, Luke Bryan, Dolly Parton, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jason Aldean, Willie Nelson, Little Big Town and George Strait. In addition, for what are likely their last recordings ever, the project also features the late Leon Russell and Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry.

Country legend Ronnie Milsap has updated some of his classics — and has teamed up with one of the genre’s brightest new stars to sing it. The 75-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer released his new rendition of his 1981 hit “No Getting Over Me” featuring Musgraves.

“Singing with Kacey is so much fun. She’s a pure vocalist and knows how to lean into a melody,” Milsap told  PEOPLE about the pair’s collaboration which will be featured on his upcoming album.

“Having her on this gave the song a whole new twist, which is what music is all about. How do you take what you know and make it even more?” he explains.

The project marks his 28th studio album and will feature Luke Bryan on “Stranger in My House” and Jason Aldean “Prisoner of the Highway”.

“My duet with Willie is a new song that Mike Reid wrote called ‘A Woman’s Love’,” says Milsap. “He and I had 12 number one records together in the ‘80s like 'Stranger in My House' and 'Old Folks.' I sent ‘A Woman’s Love’ to Willie. He told me, ‘I love the song.’ So he’s gonna sing on it and play guitar in his home studio."
