Country Music History August 26
Hey, happy Friday gang! Wishing you all a great weekend.
This is a fact I found interesting and somewhat sad. Remember the Billy Currington song "Walk A Little Straighter"? Well, that song was written due to circumstances in Billy's personal life. In 2007, Billy entered a treatment center in Hawaii to deal with anger issues brought about from abuse he sustained as a child from his step-father.
In 1992, Alan Jackson earned his first double-platinum album for "Don't Rock The Jukebox". In 2011, Luke Bryan earned a platinum single for "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)".
Minneapolis native Jimmy Olander was born in 1961. Olander, a very accomplished guitarist, was a member of Diamond Rio.
And in 1985, Florida Georgia Line founding member Brian Kelley was born in Daytona Beach, Florida.
