Today In Country Music History – Faith Hill, Baseball and The IRS
We should start by wishing Faith Hill a very Happy Birthday! Faith truly is a Mississippi girl and on this day back in 19-shut your mouth. She was born in Jackson Mississippi. Do you remember Faith's first big hit?
Can you believe it has been 20 years since this song was released? Personally I love the larger hair and pretty eyes. Faith has always been a beautiful lady and I'm proud to say we have known each other since some very humble beginnings.
On this day in 1977 Nashville got a baseball team. Paying homage to the city's most recognizable asset the owners of the team decided the team would be known as The Nashville Sounds. Some of the team's original owners included Conway Twitty and Jerry Reed.
It was also on this date a entire genre of Willie Nelson jokes were born. This was the day in 1990 that the Internal Revenue Service placed liens totaling 16.7 million dollars on Willie Nelson's assets to insure Willie would pay the IRS the 6.5 million dollars in back taxes the agency said he owed.
It might be nice of you to call in a request for one of Willie's songs or make that request online for Classic Country Saturday Night we want to make sure Willie can pay the bills and afford to keep weed in the bus.
