Country Music Timeline: A Number One For Ray And Willie

Willie Nelson and Ray Charles
(YouTube)

March 23 –
A bit of a Spanish theme today as Ray Charles and Willie Nelson score a number one hit with “Seven Spanish Angels” and George Strait releases his first video in four years for “The Seashores Of Old Mexico.” It all happened on March 23rd on the Country Music Timeline…

1985 – Ray Charles and Willie Nelson jump to the top of the Billboard Country chart with “Seven Spanish Angels” Billboard.com

1993 – Bruce Springsteen gives his version of “Achy Breaky Heart” at a concert in Red Bank, New Jersey. Most people laugh about it but he goes on to say that it’s “just damn good.”  If The Boss says it’s good then we’ll just have to believe him.  CMT.com

1996 – Patty Loveless gets a number one hit with “You Can Feel Bad.”

2006 – Sugarland and Dierks Bentley are the opening acts as Kenny Chesney kicks off his 2006 “The Road And The Radio” tour.

2006 – George Strait comes out with his first video in four years. It’s for a song that was written by Merle Haggard and the video features the first barefooted George Strait ever. Remarkably, it’s one of the few George Strait songs that doesn’t jump to the top of the charts as it levels off at #11.

2009 – Jamey Johnson and Shooter Jennings mesh well on a new episode of “CMT’s Crossroads.”
