Country fans will be in for a treat as United Wireless Arena will be hosting Ronnie Milsap on Saturday, Oct. 13.

Compiling 40 No. 1 hits including "(There’s) No Gettin’ Over Me,"

Milsap's career spans more than 50 years where the star has racked up

six Grammys; eight Country Music Association awards, Entertainer of the Year; and four more Academy of Country Music awards and the Pioneer Award.

Milsap was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014.

According to his website, the formative teenage years set a tone for an entire lifetime for Milsap.

"Personal battles, career goals, ideas about love – figuring out how all of that will play out during adulthood is one of the big chores of those high-school years," the website goes on to say. "Setting the backdrop for much of that inner struggle is the music – it’s the soundtrack of one’s identity, the bond that glues generations.

That idea is at the heart of Ronnie Milsap’s Summer #17, an album that explores the influences on a musician who built a Hall of Fame-caliber career, who became one of the most influential voices in country music’s storied history.

"Milsap set the standard for thinking outside of country’s proverbial box."

The October show will be the third booked at UWA which includes Casting Crowns, Hairball and Scott Mcreery as well as the band America playing on Sept. 29.

Doors for the concert will open at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m.
