When I think of clever country songwriters, Roger Miller is at the head of this list. On today's "Country Classic Double", we're featuring the number one country song on this day back in 1964, "Dang Me" by Roger Miller. It's amazing to me how he created memorable sing-along- songs with such funny lyrics, often inventing words and all in rhyme.
T.G.I.F. On today's Friday edition of our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m., we'll begin with the number one country song on this day in 1986, "On The Other Hand" by Randy Travis. Of the many male vocalists in country music, Randy Travis' smooth, unmistakable voice is one that you recognize as soon as you hear him sing the first line.
Alabama is one of the most successful super groups of country and pop music. We begin today's "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. with the number one song on the country charts this day back in 1981, "Feels So Right", by Alabama.
Now and then, we select an unusual category of country songs for our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. Today, it's songs for the birds. We'll begin with Anne Murray's first big hit and signature song in 1970, "Snowbird" which also did quite well on pop charts. We'll follow it up with another bird song, Ferlin Husky's "Wings Of A Dove" from 1960.
T.G.I.F....and Friday the 13th at that! Another scorcher is expected today with temps hitting the 90s, and Saturday as well. We'll kick off today's "Country Classic Double" with a song all about this heat wave (sort of), "When You're Hot, You're Hot", by the late Jerry Reed which was the number one country song on this day back in 1971.
On this day back in 1968, the number one country song in the U.S.A. was "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" by the late Tammy Wynette. Today, we're featuring it as our first song of the "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m.
In my opinion, any time we feature Johnny Cash on our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m., it's an event. Today we kick off with "Sunday Morning Coming Down", a song written by Kris Kristofferson and recorded by Johnny Cash on this day in 1970. It went to number one later that year.
This week back in 1990, Mark Chestnutt, a Frogfest headliner from a few years ago, released his first single, "Too Cold At Home". The song eventually went to number three on the country charts, and we're featuring it on today's "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m.
I usually like to save "Working Man Blues" by Merle Haggard for Labor Day's "Country Classic Double", but on this day back in 1969, the song entered the country charts on its way to number one. And to be fair, I'm sure if that song were recorded today it would include the working woman too.
One of my favorite country artists, Ronnie Milsap and his number one country song 30 years ago today, "Any Day Now" kicks off today's "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. Ronnie Milsap is one of those country artists with mass appeal to a wide audience and has racked up many hits on the pop charts.
Elvis Presley was not only a huge rock 'n roll star, but many of his songs hit number one on the country charts. Today, we kick of our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. with a song Elvis recorded on this day back in 1956, "Don't Be Cruel", which eventually went to number one.
