American Country Music Legend Ronnie Milsap Headlines November 3rd Concert at
Winspear Opera House
Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind will celebrate their 85th year with American country music legend, Ronnie Milsap, headlining a November 3rd benefit concert at the Winspear Opera House. Proceeds from “An Evening with Ronnie Milsap” will benefit the more than 150,000 blind and visually impaired served in North Texas through training, tools, and resources.
The evening of Thursday, November 3rd, will be a heartwarming celebration. With six Grammy Awards and 40 No. 1 country hits, pianist, singer, and songwriter Ronnie Lee Milsap is one of country music’s most popular and influential performers with extra special significance for the Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind and its supporters. Milsap is recognized as country music’s first successful blind singer with crossover appeal in the pop market for hits songs such as “Smoky Mountain Rain”, “No Getting’ Over Me”, “I Wouldn’t Have Missed it for the World” and “Stranger in My House”.
Born with a congenital disorder, Milsap lost all vision by early childhood. At the age of seven, his musical talents were discovered and he began classical training. Young Ronnie learned several instruments and skillfully mastered the piano. In 2014, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
"Music is the guiding light of my life. I am a living testament to the power of music and its restorative qualities. The opportunity to perform for the 85th Anniversary Celebration of Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind is a true honor. Although I have been fortunate enough to receive many gracious awards and accolades, it still humbles me to know people appreciate my gift.”
Ticket prices range from $35 to $150 and can be purchased at
