David Nail made his Grand Ole Opry Debut on this date in 2009, Kenny Chesney  played for then President George W. Bush and the Prime Minister of Australia at the White House in 2006 and Trisha Yearwood showed her acting skills on an episode of CBS TV’s Jag in 2000.

I remember that I liked the show, and thought she did fairly well, but the network should not have used her music all through the episode. One of her songs at the end would have been all that was needed.

Here’s the rundown for Today In Country Music History for 16 May, 2011.

  • David Nail made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2009.
  • Kenny Chesney performed for president George W. Bush and Australian prime minister John Howard at the White House in 2006.
  • Trisha Yearwood played a forensics expert on CBS-TV’s JAG in 2000.
  • Faith Hill‘s “This Kiss” hit Number One on the country singles chart in 1998.
  • Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris scored a Number One country single with Phil Spector‘s “To Know Him Is To Love Him” in 1987.
  • George Strait made his first appearance on the chart with his first single, “Unwound,” in 1981.
  • Alabama released their first RCA single, “Tennessee River,” in 1980.
