Luke Bryan appears on the Grand Ole Opry, Garth scores his fifth #1 hit, and Billy Ray Cyrus releases Achy Breaky Heart in today’s Today In Country Music History for April 6th, 2011.

It never ceases to amaze me how the British latch onto American Country Music. I was watching a BBC crime drama with a scene set in a London pub and in the background was a British band trying valiantly to play Achy Breaky Heart. I totally lost track of the conversation in the foreground for laughing out loud.

  • Luke Bryan made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2007.
  • Mac Davis was announced as an inductee into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006.
