The 26th of July saw many country music milestones made, especially in the 1960’s!
We’ll feature a song today which was written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. It was originally recorded by Keith Whitley and put on his LA to Miami album in 1985. A young star by the name of Randy Travis discovered it and released the song later that year, however it only peaked at 67. Fast forward to 1986, he re-released the song after the success he had with “1982.” That re-release paid off because”On the Other Hand” became his first number 1 hit on this day in 1986.
And George Fox had the number 1 song in Canada this week in 1995.
Join us at 1 p.m. today to hear the milestones!
