Just three years ago this week, Scotty McCreery’s “Five More Minutes” earned a platinum single from the RIAA… Scotty talked about the song at the time. 

In 2008, Capitol Records released Darius Rucker’s first country single, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” to radio. Darius shared with us how his transition from pop to country went so very smooth. 

21 years ago in 2000, CBS presents the TV special Judds Reunion: Power To Change, with performances of “Give A Little Love,” “Mama He’s Crazy” and “Love Can Build A Bridge.” Naomi talked about The Judds’ early days before they hit the big time. 

And 35 years ago, this week in 1986, Hank Williams Jr.’s cover of “Ain’t Misbehavin'” hit he top of the Billboard country singles chart. Hank tells us he has no one favorite song of his.
