Platinum certification for one million albums sold didn't begin until 1976, so while other recordings may have soared past this sales mark, Wanted: The Outlaws became the first official platinum album in country music history that year.
Country music has had it's share of odd duets. You could say the number one hit "Who Says You Can't Go Home" by Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles was an odd one. Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake were an usual pairing too but back in 1984 perhaps the most unusual ever went all the way to number one on the country chart.
There may be about 26 people alive on this planet who do not know who Willie Nelson is. In fact there are only about 26 people on this planet who have not recorded a duet with Willie. It seems like every artist of every genre of music has wanted to record with Willie.
I was ten years old when my dad brought home the 8-track tape of a new Willie Nelson album. I remember him coming home with 'Red Headed Stranger' and I don't think there was a vacation or road trip with my dad afterwards that did not include listening to that record. It was part of the soundtrack of life starting back in 1975.
Duets have always been a huge part of country music. We have had some amazing duos and some cool one time pairings as well. From Conway and Loretta to Porter and Dolly to Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles, country music has seen a lot of cool partnerships.
