In 1955, Tennessee Ernie Ford sang “Sixteen Tons” on his daytime variety show. Fan mail poured in, so he decided to record the song two weeks later.

A couple of decades later in 1967 the world was introduced to a talented performer from Tennessee named Dolly Parton as she makes her first appearance on The Porter Wagoner Show.

And Vince Gill picks up his first #1 hit in 1992 with “I Still Believe In You.”
