Garth Brooks’ “The Dance” is probably my favorite song because I love the message of it. Our Throwback song by Ronnie Milsap shares the similar message of the old saying “it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.”
“I Wouldn’t Have Missed It for the World” was written by Charles Quillen, Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan. It was released in October 1981 as the second single from the album “There’s No Gettin’ Over Me.” It became his 19th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, reached No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot Adult Contemporary Singles chart.
Ronnie compiled 40 No. 1 country hits over his career. He also won 6 Grammys, 8 CMA awards, including Entertainer of the Year and four more Academy of Country Music trophies, including the lifetime honor, the Pioneer Award. He continues to tour and I can’t wait to see him for the first time in San Antonio, Texas in April.
I hope you’ll check in here next Thursday as we decorate your life with another great Throwback song.
