Has Ronnie Milsap ever been married? Who is his wife?

Country music legend Milsap is a married man. He got married to Joyce Reeves in 1965. The couple is still together and has been over five decades that they are still enjoying each other.

Whether it is a random coincidence or some divine guidance, Ronnie’s successful navigation of that primary relationship has fueled an artistic relationship with millions, because what is most important in his life is also a priority in theirs. Well needless to say he is the kind of person who thinks love is the foundation of living.

 “You don’t know why love works,” says Milsap. “You don’t know when you meet somebody and you feel a spark or you feel a connection – did that happen randomly? Or is it something that was predetermined?” he adds.

 “The only thing that really counts, that really matters is love,” he says. “That’s the only thing that’s gonna get me through.”

He surely loves his wife very much and there is no doubt that she is his greatest inspiration. He proudly shares in most of the interviews about his love for his wife. “When I'm with my wife, I know she's a beautiful woman. I know that, and more than that, it's what she is inside. She's beautiful inside; she loves music like I do. That's the thing that brought us together and probably keeps us together”, he said in one of his interviews.

He shares that personal connection with Joyce and his love for music are behind the innovation, the sweat, creative fire and the elite Hall of Fame-Level Legacy Ronnie has developed.

His passion for music is one thing his parents were proud right from his childhood. The seed of that fire can be found in Summer #17. They provide a clue to the inspirations Milsap used to reshape the landscape of country with an uncanny daring style of music.

What the kids are doing today in redefining country is nothing new. They are simply carrying on a master plan laid down by him years ago.

He once said “I always know I'm a country singer, and regardless of where I've fallen into different places with my music, I know that, really, I'm a country singer”. And yes we must say he nailed it. He is one of the rarest gems in the country and classical music.

Milsap used pop, rock and R&B elements to test country’s borders, and did so in a way that connected fiercely with the music-buying public. His sales accrued eight gold albums; his greatest hits made him one of the first acts in any genre to obtain double-platinum status.

His net worth is estimated to be $14 million.
