On this day in 1978, the number one country song was "Blue Skies", recorded by Willie Nelson on his "Stardust" album, and we're featuring it on today's "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. "Blue Skies" is an American classic written by Irving Berlin (who also wrote "White Christmas") and has been recorded by just about everyone.
