Probably one of his most famous songs, Ronnie Milsap’s “Smoky Mountain Rain” is a soulful ballad detailing the story of being left by a loved one, and the search to find her again. In 1980, this country-contemporary crossover was his 16th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country, Contemporary and Hot 100 charts. In 2010, the song became Tennessee’s 8th state song, and in 2014 Rolling Stone ranked “Smoky Mountain Rain” in their “Top 100 Country Songs” list.
