It was on this date in 1983 that CMT first appeared on our TV screens. I used to watch it all the time because, believe it or not, they used to show videos. Now it seems like it's an endless stream of mindless shows. I miss the days of turning on CMT to see and hear about music. I know they do a good awards show but I would rather watch videos than the latest episode of some mindless redneck themed show. I find those to be a bit of a slap in the face to country fans.

I remember when we got started as K99 the first song we ever played was Hank Williams Jr "Young Country". Do you know what the first video CMT showed was? The answer is right here. Faron Young "It's Four In The Morning".
