celebrated the gold certification of his album 40 #1 Hits
with a party and performance at BMI Nashville. Producer Scott Hendricks, formerly of Virgin Records [which released the album] presented a gold record plaque to Milsap, who then handed out plaques to others associated with the record, including manager Burt Stein of Gold Mountain Entertainment, booking agent Buddy Lee Attractions, and RCA Label Group's Joe Galante, with whom he began his recording career in 1973. Milsap played a medley for the crowd of friends and colleagues, including "It Was Almost Like A Song," "I Wouldn't Have Missed It For The World," "Pure Love" and "There Ain't No Getting Over Me." A winner of several ACM, CMA and Grammy Awards, Milsap is currently working on various studio projects.
