This week in country music: 2000 Tim McGraw

(KFVS) -

Let's turn back the clock and see what country artists were red hot this week 17 years ago.

These were the songs at the top of Billboard Magazine's Hot Country Singles chart on the first week of January, 2000.

At number five was Brad Paisley with We Danced.  The song would go on to become Paisley's second of his 18 number one hits so far.

Kenny Chesney was in the number four spot with I Lost It. The song featured background vocals by Pam Tillis.

Checking in at number three was Boonville, Missouri native Sara Evans with Born to Fly. You may remember the video to this one. It featured a takeoff of the movie The Wizard of Oz.  It won Evans her first CMA award for Video of the Year.

The Dixie Chicks were in the number two spot.  Without You was a ballad from the group's album "Fly"

And in the top spot was Tim McGraw with My Next Thirty Years. The song had been on the charts since April of 1999 as an album cut from McGraw's A Place in the Sun. It would spend five weeks at number one and climbed as high as number 27 on the pop charts.
