It was just one year ago today that we first said hello to The Band Perry, Cyndi Thompson said goodbye and retired in 2002, just as her first album went gold, and Trisha Yearwood Lied her way to the top of the charts in 1996.

Here’s the list for Today In Country Music for 12 October, 2011.

  • The Band Perry‘s self-titled debut album was released in 2010.
  • Sara Evans filed for divorce from Craig Schelske in Franklin, Tennessee in 2006, citing infidelity, verbal abuse and heavy use of pornography.
  • Cyndi Thomson announced her early retirement from her career as a country artist in 2002. She had released just one album, My World, which went gold.
  • John Denver was killed when the plane he was piloting crashed off the coast of Monterey, California in 1997.
  • Trisha Yearwood earned a Number One single in Billboard with “Believe Me Baby (I Lied)” in 1996.
  • Ricky Van Shelton‘s “Keep It Between The Lines” climbed to Number One on the Billboard country singles chart in 1991.
  • Faith Hill‘s debut album, Take Me As I Am, was released in 1993.

If you couldn’t remember Cyndi Thompson, you’re not alone. So I tracked down her 2002 video.
