"(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" by Ronnie Milsap

Top 10 Alert!
Grammy Alert!
Song#:  0654
Date:  06/27/1981
Debut:  75
Peak:  5
Weeks:  20
Genre:  Country Crossover

Pop Bits:  By this time, Milsap was already a country superstar with 17 #1's already in his chart bank (this would become his 18th), but acceptance on pop radio was slow to come. Over the years he could only get a couple Top 30 entries, but this lead single from his album "There's No Gettin' Over Me" finally broke him through into the Top 10. Sadly, it would be his only song to do so. The success of the single helped the album become his best effort on the pop chart (#31) and it would serve as his second #1 country album.

ReduxReview:  Obviously one of Milsap's best and it certainly was worthy of getting into the Top 10 - finally! It's such an easy-going song and his vocal is great. During the time on the pop chart when country artists were crossing that line between pop and country, this was one of the best that came along.

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia:  This song won Milsap the Grammy for Best Country & Western Vocal Performance, Male. It would be his third Grammy in the category.
