Whatever Happened To Ricky Van Shelton?

Ricky Van Shelton.

He had over 15 Top Ten Country Music hit’s, including nine number one smash hit’s.

The number one’s began with 1987’s ‘Somebody Lied’.  Then came the follow-up single, an absolutely gorgeous ballad called ‘Life Turned Her That Way’.

More number one smashes followed, included three in 1988 alone! (‘Don’t We All Have The Right’, ‘I’ll Leave This World Loving You’ and ‘From A Jack To A King’).

Ricky Van Shelton was one of Country Music’s biggest star’s in the late 1980’s.  ‘Living Proof’ topped the charts in 1989.  And he didn’t stop there.

The 1990’s brought with it more number one’s, like ‘I’ve Cried My Last Tear For You’ and ‘I Am A Simple Man’.  And, of course, his all time duet great hit with Dolly Parton, 1991’s ‘Rockin’ Years’.
