Reba McEntire has been a household name for so long that it's easy to forget how much she struggled before she made it big. The country icon didn't score her first No. 1 hit until her 14th single, "Can't Even Get the Blues," in 1983.
Major League Baseball spring training is right around the corner, and in the year 2000, that meant country superstar Garth Brooks reported for duty to the New York Mets clubhouse. It was the second of three stints the singer had in the bigs, and he left with an unimpressive batting average.
Carrie Underwood is one of the biggest stars in country music, but her duet with one of her own childhood heroes was a special moment even for her. The superstar returned to American Idol in 2009 to perform "I Told You So" as a duet with Randy Travis.
It's hard to believe there was ever a time Alan Jackson didn't have a No. 1 single to his name. The country legend celebrates a milestone today, as on March 9, 1991, he garnered his very first No. 1 song with "I'd Love You All Over Again."
Before Miranda Lambert became a household name, the singer was a former contestant on Nashville Star trying to make it in the country genre. She scored a breakthrough when she earned her first Gold single for "Kerosene."
Sara Evans has had a string of No. 1 singles throughout her career, but it wasn't until her second album that the Missouri native scored her first chart-topper. In 1998, Evans saw her first breakthrough hit with "No Place That Far," the title track off her sophomore album.
Before Rascal Flatts became an award-winning trio with a slew of awards and No. 1 hits, the band members were singing a different tune. Rascal Flatts members Gary LeVox and Joe Don Rooney actually both served stints in Little Big Town.
Johnny Cash, the Man in Black, wore blue denim the day he visited Sesame Street during the fifth season of the legendary children's show. He made a quick fan out of Oscar the Grouch, who really got into his song, "Nasty Dan."
