May Retro Country Rewind (Part 2) #MewsicMovesMe

It's been a couple years since we premiered our mewsic feature "Retro Country Rewind," a look back at favorite songs that hit #1 during that month from 30, 35, 40 plus years ago. This year we're delving into #1 hits from 1971, 1976, 1981, and so on. Let's take a look at part 2 of our May selections (since we found too many great songs for just one post) for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...


40 Years Ago - 1981, Rest Your Love On Me, Conway Twitty

Read more about its history in my Crazy In Love With Conway blog post HERE!


35 Years Ago - 1986, Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days), The Judds


35 Years Ago - 1986, Once In A Blue Moon, Earl Thomas Conley


35 Years Ago - 1986, Whoever's In New England, Reba


We hope you enjoyed our picks this week!
Let us know if you have a favorite!

I still love the Judd’s Grandpa song.

M&M,

Mama Judd and daughter were really good together. I much prefer listening to them as duet than Wynonna's solo act. I had forgotten about Earl Thomas Conley. Nice playset for the 4M dance party, my dear. Have a boogietastic week, furriends!

Mudpie, what an excellent selection of songs you shared. Our dad loves Reba McEntire and would always buy her albums and play them all the time when outside doing yard work. Thanks for sharing. We hope you are having a wonderful day.
