We love #TBT – Throwback Thursday allows us to whip out embarrassing pictures of friends and family, and post them on social media – awesome! I’m sure if country music singer Charlie Rich were alive today, he would be cringing over one of the most controversial moments of his career, which can now be seen all over the internet. At the 1975 CMA Awards, Charlie Rich calmly read the winner of the Entertainer of the Year Award, which was John Denver, and promptly set the envelope on fire to show his disdain. It’s one of the most shocking moments in country music awards history,and Charlie was clearly intoxicated, so that makes it just a little more interesting! Here’st the video, in case you’ve forgotten about it.
