Top 5 Songs From 1993, Tejas Brothers Visit, Rhett Akins & Thomas Rhett Set a Record – Top Stories of the Week
Here are the top 5 stories for the past week just in cased you missed one.
In the fall of 1993 all of the top five songs had one thing in common, they all were about love lost. But one song stood above the rest by staying at No.1 on the country music charts for multiple weeks. It’s no surprise that George Strait took us into to the holidays with his song “Easy Come, Easy Go” a song that was number one for two weeks that fall. 1993 also had other amazing songs like it.
Whenever the Tejas Brothers are around, a good time is sure to be had. The fun-loving band knows how to enjoy themselves and bring a crowd of people into their happy place. So it goes without saying that laughs and jokes were had when Dave Perez, John Garza and Beau Johnson (guitarist Derek Groves was running late) stopped by the KEAN studios for a visit.
Rhett Akins has been writing songs for over twenty years, so when his son Thomas Rhett gets his first No.1 with “It Goes Like This” (a song they co-wrote) and the song stays at No.1 three weeks in a row, father and son speak up about their success. Another interesting fact, they both co-wrote five of the top ten songs on the current country music charts.
It’s officially the Zac Brown Brood, as baby No. 5 is on the way for the Zac Brown Band front-man. The bearded, beanie-wearing singer and wife Shelly will welcome the new addition in early 2014.
Samson is an 8 year old Springer Spaniel mix with the sweetest personality ever. His big brown eyes seem to say, “I need a place to stay, a place to call home.” Don’t let his age discourage you either, because Samson is ready to run and play or just chill and hang out, which ever you prefer. Samson was turned in by his owner, who can no longer care for him. Because Samson is a turn in, he does not have long to live. Please help us find a home for our “KEAN Critter” of the week. See him at the Abilene Animal Control Shelter in cage W-27.
