The show in 1961 at Carnegie Hall would have been like going to entertainment heaven. Unfortunately, I didn’t make that one.

I do know exactly where I was at the time though. I was with my mom. I was exactly one week away from being born.

However, it didn’t take me long to get up to speed with all the great country music and other things in the entertainment world. And now 50(almost 51) years later, I’m still following it all.

Here are some highlights from this day on the music and entertainment calendar:

  • 2008 – Taylor Swift went number one on the U.S. album chart with her second studio album ‘Fearless.’
  • 2001 – George Harrison died after a battle with cancer that began in 1998. He was 58.
  • 1994 – Brooks & Dunn’s debut album ‘Brand New Man’ became the first album by a country duo certified four-times platinum.
  • 1994 – The Tractors’ self-titled debut album went platinum. It was the first time a country band reached that sales plateau without touring.
  • 1986 – Actor Cary Grant died in Davenport, Iowa, at age 82.
  • 1981 – Actress Natalie Wood drowned off Santa Catalina Island, California, at age 43. The death was ruled accidental, but years later amended to ‘drowning and other undetermined factors.’
  • 1976 – Jerry Lee Lewis shot his bass player, Norman ‘Butch’ Owens, twice in the chest while trying to hit a soda bottle. Lewis was charged with shooting a firearm within the city limits.
  • 1964 – Actor Lorne Greene had the number one single with the spoken-word hit ‘Ringo’.
