Today In Country Music History: Tracy Byrd Soars To #1
Tracy Byrd has had a number of hits over the years. It’s hard to believe that only two of them have gone to #1 on the Billboard charts. Some of his big hits include, “Don’t Take Her (She’s All I Got)”, “Keeper Of The Stars”, “Watermelon Crawl”, and “I’m From The Country.” But the two that went to number one include “Holdin’ Heaven” and the one that topped the charts today back in 2002.
“Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo” was Byrd’s second number one hit after “Holdin’ Heaven” hit the top of the charts in 1993. His second chart topper was on his 2001 CD ‘Ten Rounds‘ and it was the 3rd single released from that album.
By the way…I couldn’t believe that “Keeper Of The Stars” didn’t go number one either. I had to look it up on Billboard to believe it myself. It topped out at #2 in 1995.
