“KENTUCKY RAIN” Elvis Presley
Life is funny. In 1970, Elvis Presley was recording “Kentucky Rain” written by up and coming songwriter, Eddie Rabbitt, and his producer needed a pianist for the song. Working as a session musician at the time, Ronnie Milsap was asked to played piano on Elvis’ big #1 hit song. The lyrics about a rainstorm and a man searching for his lost love touched the hearts of so many of Elvis’ fans. “Seven lonely days and a dozen towns ago, I reached out one night and you were gone”. So off he went to find her, “Showed your photograph to some old grey bearded man sitting on a bench outside a gen’ral store, They said “Yes, she’s been here, but their memory wasn’t clear.” The emotional record launched a resurgence in Elvis Presley’s career in country music.
