It was on this date in 2004 that Montgomery Gentry struck gold by doing their own thing, Neal McCoy winked for four weeks starting in 1994 and Dolly Parton’s rhinestones met Sylvester Stallone in 1984.

Here’s the rundown for Today In Country Music History for 18 June, 2011.

  • Montgomery Gentry‘s You Do Your Thing album went gold in 2004.
  • Neal McCoy‘s “Wink” began a four-week ride at Number One in Billboard in 1994.
  • Rhinestone, starring Dolly Parton and Sylvester Stallone, premiered at Nashville’s Roy Acuff Theater in 1984.
  • Gene Autry recorded “You Are My Sunshine” in 1941.

Just for grins, here’s Sylvester Stallone singing (more or less) with Dolly in the final song from the movie Rhinestone.
