Number 1’s at 1 – July 15

Coming up on today’s show:

The Everly Brothers scored their first number one song on this day in 1957 with “Bye Bye Love.” 32 years later Reba McEntire would take an old Everly Brothers song, “Cathy’s Clown,” to number one from her record “Sweet Sixteen.” That album was number one this week in 1989.

Alan Jackson was in the middle of a three week ride at number 1 on the Hot Country Singles Chart on this day in 1991 with his second number one hit, “Don’t Rock the Jukebox.”

John Anderson released a new album titled “Years” earlier this spring. He was enjoying a one week ride at number on this day in 1993 with “Money in the Bank.”

Ronnie Milsap climbed to the top of the charts for two weeks starting on July 15th, 1977 with “It Was Almost Like a Song.”

Waylon Jennings started his third and final week at number one with “Amanda.”

Eddy Raven landed his eighth number one on this day in 1989 with “In a Letter to You.”

And we’ll celebrate three country music birthdays today, Linda Ronstadt, Mac McAnally, and Hal Willis.
