1981 “(There’s) No Gettin’ Over Me” by Ronnie Milsap was at #1 on the Country charts, (the song’s official title appears nowhere in the lyrics). It became one of Milsap’s biggest country and pop hits during his recording career.
1991 Dottie West, country music singer and songwriter died in hospital on the operating table aged 58. West had been involved in a car crash a few days earlier when she was on her way to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. Along with Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn, West is considered one of the genre’s most influential and groundbreaking female artists. Her career started in the early 1960s, with her Top 10 hit, in which she won Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 1965.
1999 Lonestar’s hit, “Amazed,” spent its eighth week at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, becoming the first song to do so since Jack Greene’s 1966 hit, “There Goes My Everything.” In several other charts, including Radio & Records, “Amazed” reigns for nine weeks, which made it the longest-lasting #1 single since 1966’s “Almost Persuaded” by David Houston.
