Today in Country Music, August 3.
On this day in 2011, music icon Tony Bennett tweeted a photo of himself and Carrie Underwood on the set of cbs' Blue Bloods, on which they played themselves and sang their duet.
Today in 2004, Montgomery Gentry gathered with friends in Nashville to celebrate their first number one – "If You Ever Stop Loving Me."
And Shania Twain's "Any Man Of Mine" was the most popular song in the country for a second week in 1995.
"Any Man of Mine" was co-written and recorded by Shania Twain and released in April 1995 as the second single from her 1995 album The Woman in Me. The song was written by Robert John "Mutt" Lange and Twain. The song became Twain's first number one hit at country radio, as well her first crossover hit after it cracked the top 40 on the pop charts. It was released to radio in April 1995, and topped the charts for two weeks in July. "Any Man of Mine" was released to European markets but due to its country sound, it didn't make much of an impact. The song was later included in Twain's 2004 Greatest Hits package.
"Any Man of Mine" also proved to be a critical success, it was nominated for both Best Country Song and Best Female Country Vocal Performance at the 1996 Grammy Awards. It won Single of the Year at both the Canadian Country Music Awards and Country Music Radio Awards in 1995. It also won Country Single of the Year at the 1996 Jukebox Awards and Song of the Year at the 1996 RPM Big Country Music Awards. This song is used in the Rock Band Country Track Pack, and has been confirmed as upcoming downloadable content for the Rock Band series.
