Sugarland had a Baby Girl on this date in 2004, Brooks & Dunn were feeling great in 1992 and Willie, Waylon, Johnny and Kris took to the highway back in 1985.

Here’s the list for Today In Country Music History for 17 August, 2011.

  • Sugarland‘s “Baby Girl” single was released to retail in 2004. It became the group’s first hit single.
  • Vince Gill‘s When Love Finds You album went gold and platinum simultaneously in 1994.
  • Brooks & Dunn‘s first album, Brand New Man, was certified platinum in 1992.
  • George Strait‘s “You Know Me Better Than That” began a three-week stay at Number One on the Billboard country chart in 1991.
  • Highwayman, featuring Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson, appeared at the top of the Billboard chart in 1985.

Highwayman by the Highwaymen has always been one of my favorite tunes. Let’s revisit the video!
