Faith Hill sang about wings at the Inauguration Celebration on this date in 2009, Clint Black had his first number one hit in 1990 and Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs played at the Presidential Inauguration in 1969. Can you guess who the President was?

Here's the list for Today In Country Music History for 20 January, 2012.

  • Faith Hill performed "If My Heart Had Wings" at the Washington Convention Center during ABC's The Neighborhood Ball: An Inauguration Celebration in 2009.
  • Sara Evans' single "Born to Fly" hit Number One in 2001.
  • Clint Black scored his first Number One single with "Nobody's Home" in 1990.
  • Billboard magazine began compiling its country singles chart through its BDS system, a computerized monitoring of airplay, in 1990.
  • Jerry Lee Lewis debuted on the Grand Ole Opry in 1973.
  • Flatt & Scruggs played at President-elect Richard Nixon's inauguration in 1969.

It's hard to believe this song is 22 years old. Here's Clint.
