Lady Antebellum said “Hello” to the world on this date in 2010, Montgomery Gentry got the keys to the city of Louisville, Kentucky in 2002 and Jim Croce was killed in an airplane crash in 1973.

Here’s the list for Today In Country Music History for 20 September, 2011.

 

  • Lady Antebellum‘s single “Hello World” was released to radio in 2010.
  • Justin Moore sang the national anthem at Lambeau Field in Green Bay in 2009, where the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Packers, 31-24.
  • Lynchburg, Virginia, named a street after hometown boy Phil Vassar when he performed in the city in 2002. Lynchburg also proclaimed Phil Vassar Day, and presented him with a key to the city.
  • Montgomery Gentry received keys to the city of Louisville, Kentucky in 2002, as Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry were named honorary citizens.
  • During an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry in 1997, Johnny Paycheck received an invitation from Opry general manager Bob Whittaker to join the cast.
  • Crystal Gayle and Loretta Lynn played a concert together for the first time in 1988.
  • Jim Croce died in a plane crash following a concert in Natchitoches, Louisiana, in 1973.
  • Tennessee Ernie Ford recorded “You Don’t Have To Be A Baby To Cry” and his Number One hit “Sixteen Tons” in 1955.

With such an incredibly short career, Jim Croce left us with a great body of work. Here’s one of my favorites.
