I’m filling in for Colin Lovequist again this week on Number 1’s at 1. We’ll blow the dust off the time machine and travel back to relive some of country music’s biggest moments.
On the show today:
Billy Currington scored his second number 1 on this day in 2007 with “Good Directions.” It stayed there for three weeks.
We’ll head back to May 30th, 1994 and take a look at the Canadian chart as compiled by RPM country tracks. John Berry was number 1 that year with “Your Love Amazes me.”
Everybody was line dancing (or wanted to learn how to line dance) thanks to the song “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus. It started its five week ride at number 1 on this day in 1992!
Who’s a child of the 80’s? It was the decade where we saw Sissy Spacek win the Academy Award for Coal Miner’s Daughter. The desktop fax machine debuted, Kodak started selling their groundbreaking and wildly successful Fling 200 disposable camera (yes, the one with the winding wheel), and Randy Travis was making us all feel good with his album “Forever and Always,” which hit number one on this day in 1987.
Speaking of the 1980’s, the Oak Ridge Boys hit number 1 on May 30, 1981 with “Elvira.”
Happy 52nd wedding anniversary to Dolly Parton and her husband Carl and happy 54th birthday to Wynonna Judd!
Finally, Stompin Tom was at number 1 on our country on this day in 1970 with “Big Joe Mufferaw.”
I’ve got a whole lot more lined up starting at 1 p.m. today on 620 CKRM!
