Country Artists Revisit ‘1994’ – Throwback Thursday
Jason Aldean‘s new single ‘1994’ has inspired a crowd of country music fans to reveal what they looked like in 1994 — a year of mullets, Aqua Net and $1.11 gasoline prices. In addition, many country superstars, like Keith Urban and Luke Bryan, have shared their ‘1994’ pics. Dierks Bentley, Kristen Kelly, Tim McGraw and RaeLynn are a few others with pictures found in this Throwback Thursday collection. Wait a second, was RaeLynn even alive in 1994?!
The legends of today were the hitmakers of country music in the mid-’90s. Reba McEntire and Vince Gill picked up the Entertainer of the Year awards at the ACM and CMA Awards, respectively. The most played song of the year was ‘I Swear’ by John Michael Montgomery, and Merle Haggard was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in ’94.
In pop culture, we followed the attacks on Nancy Kerrigan, the chase of O.J. Simpson and the Major League Baseball strike. We also spent our spare time in front of our Sega Genesis, playing ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 3′ — one of the top video games of that year. Computer gaming was still a few years away.
