The final poll of July 2017 has been completed and we have a new batch of 90’s country classics lined up for this week’s Throwback Top10 Countdown! Though the majority of songs from last week held onto a spot in the new lineup, we do in fact have an all new #1 song!
It has been quite a few months since we have seen the boys in Alabama climbing to the top of our weekly countdown, but fans have voted “I’m In A Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)” to that position this week! I absolutely love singing along with this one and definitely agree with it spending at least one week at the top!
Right behind Alabama, who are perhaps the best BAND in country music history, comes possibly the best dup ever, in Brooks & Dunn. “Lost And Found” is the first single released by Ronnie and Kix that did NOT reach #1 back in the early 90’s, but perhaps BORN Country fans out there will rewrite history and put it at the top of our chart next week? Coming in at #3 is another heavy hitter in Mark Chesnutt’s “Bubba Shot The Jukebox.”
While taking #4 is nothing to short change, but how in the world is George Strait’s “I Cross My Heart” not hitting #1 every single week? This is one of my personal all-time favorite songs and it just blows my mind that Strait’s massive fan base has yet to bring this song to the top.
Some of country music’s truest queens line up songs on this week’s Throwback Top10. Hits from Lorrie Morgan, Kathy Mattea and Tanya Tucker score positions #5-#7, while Reba rejoins the ranks with her newest entry, “Take It Back.” With Pam Tillis still on the poll and Trisha Yearwood entering this week, we could see a massive takeover from the women of country music!
Finally, we have Garth Brooks entering the Throwback Top10 once again. This time, with one of his lesser celebrated hits in the fantastic “Somewhere Other Than The Night.” This single has been more or less forgotten over the years, but is easily one of Garth’s strongest ballads.
