THIS WEEK IN COUNTRY MUSIC

1977

Reba McEntire made her Grand Ole Opry debut. She almost did not make it in the door after a guard at the Opry gate missed her name on the night's list of performers. Her parents and older sister, Alice, drove 1,400 miles round trip from their Oklahoma home to see what turned out to be Reba's three-minute performance that night.

1980

Johnny Lee was at #1 on the US Country charts with "Lookin' for Love". The song was part of the soundtrack to one of the years biggest movies, Urban Cowboy.

1992

Garth Brooks released his fourth studio album The Chase, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and Top Country Albums chart. The album featured his version of the Little Feat song "Dixie Chicken", and "Night Rider's Lament" the classic cowboy song that had been previously recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker and Chris LeDoux.
