Ronnie Milsap, Restless Heart and the Tams have all agreed to be a part of the 2021 Blue Ridge Fest. We look forward to that event and the time when we can celebrate being together again.
An American country music singer and pianist, he was one of country music's most popular and influential performers of the 1970s and 1980s. He became one of the most successful and versatile country "crossover" singers of his time, appealing to both country and pop music markets with hit songs that incorporated pop, R&B, and rock and roll elements.
Formed in 1984, Restless Heart has released seven studio albums, two greatest-hits albums, and has enjoyed one of the most successful careers in County Music history. Placing over 25 singles on the charts, with six consecutive #1 hits, four of their albums have been certified Gold and they have won awards including the Academy of Country Music’s Top Vocal Group.
Originating from Atlanta, Georgia, The Tams enjoyed their greatest chart success in the 1960’s, but continued to chart in the 70’s and 80’s. Known for their choreographed dancing and matching suits, the band has many recognizable shagging hits such as What Kind of Fool (Do you Think I Am), Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy, and I’ve Been Hurt.
