Ronnie Milsap on The Tonight Show
Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show host, invited Ronnie Milsap and Little Big Town to appear on his show in February 2019. Ronnie Milsap's "Lost in the '50s Tonight" remained No. 1 on the Top 10 American Country Chart for weeks during 1986. Milsap's hybrid version of the Five Satins' "In The Still of the Night" lured the audience back to the innocence of the '50s during 1986. His "Lost in the '50s Tonight" with Grammy-award winning Little Big Town unearthed an incredible new version of one of Milsap's greatest hits. Little Big Town subdued the rhythm, deepened the emotion and added a country doo wop sound all its own. "Lost in the '50s Tonight" is re-released as a duet on his 2019 album.
