Houston Welcomes A Future Star This Day in Country Music – August 7th (Video)

I’m from the Houston area and am constantly reminded of the history that comes from this part of the country.

1997 – Garth Brooks gives a free concert in New York’s Central Park that’s broadcast live on HBO. Billy Joel and Don McLean join the event, with crowd estimates ranging from 200,000 to more than 1 million, as the city observes Garth Brooks Day.

 

1996 – Trace Adkins’ “Every Light In The House” video first appears on television via CMT.

 

1965 – Raul Malo born in Miami, Florida. He sings lead for The Mavericks, who win multiple Vocal Group of the Year honors in the 1990s. He later builds a stylistically diverse solo career.
