At 80 years old, blind piano player and Country Music Hall of Famer Ronnie Milsap is gearing up for his final Nashville, Tennessee, concert following about six decades of music making.


The Tuesday concert is a tribute event featuring guest singers taking turns singing Milsap's hits.


Artists on the bill include Kelly Clarkson, Little Big Town, Parker McCollum, Justin Moore, Scotty McCreery, Tracy Lawrence, Randy Houser, Sara Evans, Lorrie Morgan, Trace Adkins, Ricky Skaggs, Steven Curtis Chapman and more.


For many of the artists, the concert is personal. Milsap knew Morgan's father, George Morgan; Milsap and Skaggs are longtime friends, and McCreery's earliest memories include Milsap's music. He said his mother is a huge Milsap fan, and he remembers the whole family riding around in the car singing "Smoky Mountain Rain."


McCreery remembers Milsap performed a show near his hometown in North Carolina and that he sat down at the piano and played his hits. McCreery also recalls a video screen behind Milsap that showed the singer's life story and the stories behind the songs.


"It was really an intimate kind of show," McCreery, 29, told PEOPLE. "That concert was a highlight for young Scotty, for sure."


McCreery believes Milsap has "a song for every moment in life" and loves the storytelling and expression the pianist uses in his music.


"You can just tell how much fun he's having singing the songs and how happy it makes him, and how happy it makes the fans listen to his music," McCreery said. "I just always find my way back to his music, even if it's been a while."


Milsap has accumulated more than 40 No. 1 songs throughout his career and bridged multiple genres, including country, rock, pop, funk and rhythm and blues. He was part of the country-pop movement in the late 1970s and early '80s with hits including "It Was Almost Like a Song," "Stranger in My House," "No Gettin' over Me" and "Smoky Mountain Rain.".................and more
