On Oct. 16, Charlie Daniels will join Randy Travis and Fred Foster in becoming the newest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame. The 79-year-old, already a member of the Grand Ole Opry and the Musicians Hall of Fame, says that becoming part of the prestigious organization is his biggest dream come true. Although Charlie always hoped that he would earn a spot in the Country Music Hall of Fame while he was still alive, he was completely surprised when he first found out about the honor. He was told the Country Music Association needed a photo of him but it wasn’t a picture the wanted, they wanted to tell him he was being inducted into the Hall.
Dolly Parton is going down in the history books: She’s become the first artist to earn a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in every decade from the 1960s through the 2010s. According to Billboard, Parton notched this record after an a cappella cover of her 1973 hit “Jolene.” That song landed Parton the No. 18 spot on the Hot Country Songs chart. She can now say that she has charted Top 20 hits during the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s — six decades in a row. She is also the only artist to earn a Top 40 hit on the Hot Country Songs chart in each decade from the ’60s through the ’10s.
