1981 Was A Pretty Good Year

For country music, any year could be the year, but thinking back 1981 was the year I graduated from high school.

Although I was probably wasn’t quite in tune to the country scene as I am now, but boy is it fun looking back at some of the legends , perhaps none bigger than George Jones picking up male vocalist of the year, but how about this line-up:


Winners at the 16th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards hosted by Larry Gatlin, Tammy Wynette and Con Meredith at the Shrine Auditorium, Hollywood included: Top Female Vocalist of the Year – Dolly Parton, Top Male Vocalist of the Year – George Jones, Top Vocal Group – Alabama, Top New Female Vocalist of the Year – Terri Gibbs and Top New Male Vocalist of the Year went to Johnny Lee.

Hurrah for 1981.
