March 19…today in country music history, Garth Brooks tries his hand at baseball and finds that he’s still better at singing.  Billy Ray Cyrus finds the same thing about dancing, and Neal McCoy scores his first #1 hit…

1991 – “Chill Of An Early Fall,” the new album by George Strait is realeased. He had two #1’s on this one. (“If I Know Me” and “You Know Me Better Than That”) There was a lot about who knew George better on that CD.

1994 – Neal McCoy’s “No Doubt About It” goes to the top of the Billboard Country charts.

2000 – Garth Brooks tries his hand at baseball as he concludes spring training with the NY Mets. He ends hitless on 17 at bats.

2005 – Josh Gracin picks up his first #1 hit with “Nothing To Lose.”

2007 – Billy Ray Cyrus is compared to a “crazy bear lost in a swamp” on Dancing With The Stars.

2009 – Lady Antebellum premiers their first video for “I Run To You.” Who would have guessed that this band would become as big as they are today?

2010 – Two of my favorite bands come together for one incredible episode of “CMT Crossroads” as The Zac Brown Band join Jimmy Buffett. They perform hits such as Toes, Chicken Fried, Margaritaville, and Come Monday.
