It Happened On This Day In Country Music History
1971 Lynn Anderson was at #1 on the country music album chart with Rose Garden. The title track went on to top the country charts, where it stayed at the #1 position for five weeks, and reached #3 on the pop charts in 1971.
1978 “Every Time Two Fools Collide” by Kenny Rogers and Dottie West was at #1 on the US Country charts.
Clint Black won four trophies at the 25th annual Academy Of Country Music awards at Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre: Top Male and New Male Vocalist, Album of the Year, for Killin’ Time, and Single Record of the Year, for “A Better Man”. The show which was hosted by George Strait, Tammy Wynette, Alabama and The Judds saw Country Music Video of the Year going to Hank Williams Jr. and Hank Williams Sr. for “There’s a Tear in My Beer.”
1994 The Eagles played the first of two shows where they recorded their Hell Freezes Over album. Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Don Felder and Timothy B. Schmit first got back together the previous December for the making of a Travis Tritt video of their song, “Take It Easy”. The name of the album was taken from an earlier quote by Glen Frey, who responded to the question “When will the Eagles get back together?”
2012 Brad Paisley was featured on the South Park episode “Cartman Finds Love”, in which he voiced himself, sang “The National Anthem”, and helped Cartman sing the 90’s hit song “I Swear”, which was popularized in 1994 by John Michael Montgomery.
