Colin Lovequist is in Willowbunch for the rest of this week which means I’ll have Number 1’s at 1 for today and tomorrow! Here’s a taste of what’s coming up on today’s show:
Mark Chesnutt would take his version of Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” to number 1 on this day in 1999. At the time he said one of the reasons why he covered the song was to show fans he could sing something other than what he normally sings.
Billy Ray Cyrus was at number 1 on the country albums chart with “Some Gave All.” At the time it was the only album in the history of SoundScan to spend 17 weeks at number 1. In total, it spent 43 weeks in the top 10. “Ropin’ the Wind” from Garth Brooks was the only other album to match that record.
Buffy Sainte-Marie celebrates her 79th birthday.
Merle Haggard landed his 34th and final number 1 song on this day in 1988. “Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Star” was off his “Chill Factor” album and it would stay at number 1 for one week.
T.G. Sheppard got his 9th number 1 hist song on the charts with “Only One You” 38 years ago today. It would stay in the top spot for one week before being knocked out by “Lord I Hope This Day is Good” by Don Williams.
Aaron Goodvin was at number 1 in Canada this week back in 2019 with “You Are.”
I’ll have these songs, and more, coming up on today’s edition of Number 1’s at 1. I hope you’ll join us!
