Country legend Ronnie Milsap will be celebrated in several ways this year.

Tonight (Sept. 8), he’ll be recognized in Nashville by the Academy of Country Music, who will honor him with a Career Achievement Award during the ACM Honors ceremony at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

The festivities don’t stop there, though. In October, Milsap will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. And on Nov. 4, Legacy Recordings will release The RCA Albums Collection, which includes each of the 21 studio albums he released on the label.

According to Billboard, Milsap has amassed 49 top 10 singles for the label, with 35 hitting the chart summit, including “Pure Love,” “It Was Almost Like A Song” and “Lost In The Fifties Tonight.”

“The idea that all the music I made for RCA will be available in one place thrills me,” Milsap said in a press statement. “It is my life’s work. These songs, and the records I made are a big piece of who I am — and the people who loved them. I feel honored to know The RCA Collection is coming.”
