January 10th is a big day in country music news as on this date:
- In 1981 “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink” by Merle Haggard was at #1 on the US Country charts. Taken from his from the album, Back to the Barrooms it became Merle Haggard’s twenty-sixth #1 country hit. The single stayed at #1 for one week and spent a total of twelve weeks on the country chart.
- In 2008 Charley Pride received a lifetime achievement award from the Mississippi Arts Commission. In the early to mid-1970s Pride became the best-selling performer for RCA Records since Elvis Presley, scoring 39 #1 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
The boys also set the table for tonight’s College Football National Championship Game as the Georgia Bulldogs are a 3 point favorite over the defending National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide, which they laughed about as if Nick Sabin and company needed any thing else to fuel their fire. Not the right decision at all by the odds makers in Vegas.
Finally speaking of poor decisions, in the “Text and Tones” Topic Question of the Day, B-MO asked “Of all the bad decisions you’ve made, what was the worst?”
