It has been a beautiful day and perfect afternoon for a big ole Classic Country Saturday Night! Looks like today was quite popular for some of our favorite country stars so let's see what they were up to:

May 2nd:

1948: Happy 67th Birthday to the great Larry Gatlin!

1969: Glenn Campbell took the #1 spot on the Country singles chart with 'Galveston' which also made #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

1976: Merle Haggard hit #1 on the Country charts with 'It's All in the Movies' which was his 22nd number 1 on the country charts.

1985: Columbia Records released 'Highwaymen' album bringing together Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.

Definitely some great memories made and a big Happy Birthday. If you want to hear something from any of these classic country stars, give a shout on the leash line, (337) 261-9797 or send us a message on the Facebook Fan Page.
