Country Hits Of 1994 – Number One Songs From 20 Years Ago
This Sunday Morning on 1077/GNA, we rewind the clock and feature the Number One Songs of 20 years ago, 1994.
In 1994, Line Dancing was in full swing on TNN’s Wildhorse Saloon, Garthmania was still going strong, Opryland Theme Park was a fun destination, and legends like George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton were still making great music- even if it wasn’t making it to the top of the charts.
Faith Hill made her Country Music debut in 1993, with ‘Wild One’ becoming her first Number One Song and the first Number One Song of 1994. Newcomers Clay Walker, Neal McCoy, and John Berry were just breaking through with their first chart toppers. Meanwhile, the artists that made up the infamous Class of ’89 – Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Clint Black, Travis Tritt, Mary Chapin Carpenter, were still at the top of their game.
With artists like Shania Twain and LeAnn Rimes waiting their turn to break through, early 90’s stars Joe Diffie, John Michael Montgomery, Tracy Lawrence, Brooks and Dunn and Little Texas were making great strides towards accumulating greatest hits albums. Not to mention, a couple of artists from the early-mid 80’s were still in the race- Randy Travis, Vince Gill and George Strait.
We hope enjoy this trip back in time! Do any of these song titles bring back memories?
