Happy Friday, country music fans!  Wrap up your work week with a little country music history.

Founding member of The Eagles, Glenn Frey, was born in Detroit, Michigan, November 6, 1948.

"Bird of Paradise" singer, Little Jimmy Dickens, was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1948.

The Billboard charts for today reveal the #1 position to be held in 2004 by Phil Vassar with "In A Real Love".  In 1993, it was "Does He Love You" by Linda Davis and Reba McEntire.

My favorite, Alan Jackson, won an amazing five Country Music Association awards in 2002; Male Vocalist; Album of the Year "Drive"; Entertainer of the Year; and Single and Song of the Year for "Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)".
