Would you run with the bulls in Pamplona Spain? Kix Brooks did in 2008 (Do you think he was wearing his cowboy boots?) and Alan Jackson was really picky about what he wanted to hear on the juke box back in 1991.

Here’s the rundown for Today In Country Music History for 06 July, 2011.

  • Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley married Nashville publicist Cassie McConnell in the Bahamas in 2009.
  • Kix Brooks ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain in 2008.
  • The Rascal Flatts single, “Life Is A Highway,” was certified gold and platinum in 2007.
  • The Dixie Chicks performed at Dallas’ American Airlines Center in 2003 despite a threat that Natalie Maines would be shot on stage.
  • “The King Of The Cowboys,” Roy Rogers, died at the age of 86 in Apple Valley, California, in 1998.
  • Alan Jackson‘s “Don’t Rock The Jukebox” began a three-week stay at Number One on the country singles chart in 1991.
  • Mark Chesnutt‘s first single, “Too Cold At Home,” was released in 1990.
  • Tammy Wynette wed George Richey in 1978.
  • Anne Murray charted her first Number One country single in Billboard with a remake of “He Thinks I Still Care” in 1974.
  • Bobby Bare‘s first Top Ten hit, “Detroit City,” charted in 1963.
