Josh Turner Rides A Train, Christmas Is Not Over – Today In Country Music History [VIDEO]

Josh Turner was riding a Long Black Train to a gold record on this date in 2004, Johnny Paycheck walked away from his paycheck in 1978 and a Christmas song was at the top of the Country charts back in 1949.

Here’s the list for Today In Country Music History for 07 January, 2012.

  • Josh Turner‘s debut album, Long Black Train, was certified gold in 2004.
  • Producer and Country Music Hall Of Fame member Owen Bradley died in 1998.
  • “Take This Job And Shove It” by Johnny Paycheck began two weeks as the Number One single on the country chart in 1978.
  • Charley Pride debuted on the Grand Ole Opry in 1967.
  • Hank Snow debuted on the Grand Ole Opry in 1950.
  • Gene Autry scored a Number One hit “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” in 1949.

I know Christmas is past, but this is a true classic. I can still remember playing this album as a kid.
