The Music and Memories of January 10

Shelley Miller, Kevin Richards Entertainment

Kevin’s Country Calendar

The Headlines:

2009- Taylor Swift sings “Love Story” on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.

2003- Darryl Worely sings “Have You Forgotten” for the first time in public on the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium.

1956- Elvis first recorded in Nasvhille after Steve Sholes of RCA signed Elvis away from Sun Records for $40,000.  At this time, a normal Nashville studio session would have an artist record four songs in three hours using studio musicians.  Elvis, recorded from 2pm until 10pm with his own band, then went back the following day for another three hours.  One of the results was “Heartbreak Hotel.”

1952- Audrey Williams files for divorce from Hank Williams, Sr. for the second time in four years.  Many say that Audrey and Hank mixed like oil and water.  A bad combination that helped inspired Hank to write some of his biggest hits, including “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.”

1948- Loretta Webb marries Oliver “Mooney” Lynn at the age of 13.  The two share their life and music with the public for 48 years together, until his death in 1996 at the age of 69.  “Mooney” was not only her manager and the person who encouraged and supported her to become a Country Music singer, he was also the subject of many of her hit songs, like “You Ain’t Woman Enough” and “Don’t Come Home A Drinkin’ With Lovin’ On Your Mind.”

The #1 Hits:

1997- A Broken Wing- Martina McBride

1980- I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink- Merle Haggard

Kevin Richards’ Classic Country Hall of Fame Show is heard every Sunday, 6-9am eastern on Country 107.7/WGNA-FM.
