Another year, another edition of country music history!

Country music lost a great legend January 1, 1953.  Hank Williams was pronounced dead at Oak Hill General Hospital in West Virginia.  Williams died in the back seat of a vehicle on the way to a performance in Ohio.

During the Tournament of Roses Parade in 1992, Dwight Yoakam fell off his horse after the saddle strap broke.  The strap was readily repaired and Dwight finished out the parade on horseback.

Happy anniversary to Kellie Picker and Kyle Jacobs, married January 1, 2011.
