Number 1’s at 1 – September 20

Today is my final day hosting Number 1’s at 1. Colin Lovequist will be back on Monday with a fresh lineup of country music hits. On today’s show we’ll look at today’s country music milestones and look ahead to the weekend as well.

  • Eleven years ago today Brad Paisley landed his 12th career number one with “Waitin’ on a Woman.”
  • George Fox was climbing the Canadian charts this week back in 1988 with his debut single “Angelina.”
  • John Conlee managed to get his seventh and final number 1 hit on this day in 1986 with “Got my Heart Set on You.”
  • Going back to 1975, Ronnie Milsap reached number 1 south of the border with his first single from his “Night Things” album. “Daydreams about Night Things.” stayed at number 1 for two weeks that year.
  • September 21st, 1991 Lionel Cartwright got his first and only number 1 with “Leap of Faith.”
  • Cyndi Thomson debuted with a number 1 song September 22nd, 2001 with “What I Really Meant to Say.”
  • “Dive Bar” by Gord Bamford shot to number 1 in Canada one year ago this weekend.

We’ll play these hits and a few more starting at 1:00. I hope you’ll join us this afternoon!
