Country Music History April 2
KFIL's office is closed tomorrow for Good Friday. We wish all of our friends, clients and fans a very nice Easter weekend! Here's country music history for today:
1977 Kenny Rogers and "Lucille" reached #1 on the country singles Billboard chart, his first time.
1956 Johnny Cash recorded "I Walk The Line" at Sun Recording Studio in Memphis.
Happy birthday to Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris, born in 1947 in Birmingham, Alabama. And to Buddy Jewell, born this date in 1961 in Osceola, Arkansas. Buddy was the first "Nashville Star" competition winner in 2003.
