(KFVS) - Let's drop a couple of quarters in the Breakfast Show's Juke Box of Memories.

This morning we play a little country music from this week in 1995.

Twenty-three years ago, Billboard Magazine's Country chart had  Neal McCoy at number five with They're Playin' Our Song.  The song didn't reach the top spot. It peaked at number three but it spent 20 weeks on the chart as is one of McCoy's biggest hits.

Collin Raye was at number four with If I Were You.  It was the fifth and final single from Raye's album Extremes.

Holding down the number three spot was Travis Tritt with Tell Me I Was Dreaming. The single came in at 4 minutes and 53 seconds.  But the version on Tritt's album Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof was 6 minutes and 28 seconds.  The single cut the jam at the end of the album version so the time would be more acceptable to country radio.

At number two was Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident) by John Michael Montgomery.  It's one of Montgomery's best known songs telling the story of a woman he met a an auction in Grundy County, Tennessee.  Billboard ranked it as the number one song of 1995.

But number one for this week was Texas Tornado by Tracy Lawrence.  It was Lawrence's sixth chart topping single.  Bobby Braddock wrote the song and says he was inspired by a romantic partner of his who considered becoming a professional storm chaser.  My little Texas Tornado, blowin' me away again.
