Every Wednesday on WGNA’s Country Cafe (Noon-1pm) we feature a musical memory with ’Way Back Wednesday.’

This week we honor a '90s hit from one of today's dominant songwriters. Rhett Akins (pictured above with son Thomas Rhett) had a modest singing career in the mid-90s, but today he's an A level superstar songwriter. Akins has written or co-written smashes like 'Boys 'Round Here' 'All About Tonight' 'Honey Bee' 'Farmer's Daughter' 'Take A Back Road' 'Point At You' 'I Can Take It From There' 'Parking Lot Party' 'Hey Girl' 'Gimmie That Girl' and several others, including his own son's hits 'It Goes Like This' and 'Get Me Some of That.'

Today we rewind to 1995 to enjoy a top 5 hit he wrote for himself titled 'That Ain't My Truck.'

This week’s WGNA.com ‘Way Back Wednesday’ feature is Mickey Gilley's duet with Charley McClain 'Paradise Tonight.' At the time Gilley was riding high with the success of the movie Urban Cowboy and his own night club in Texas. Meanwhile, McClain was a rising star with the original version of 'Who's Cheatin' Who' and 'Sentimental Ole You.' The song hit Number One in 1983.
