So it is hard to believe that Randy Travis is first off now considered classic country.  I remember when he came out in 1985.  Well heck that is over 30 years ago now.  Well as I always do I went searching around for some country music history and found out that on this day in 2003 Randy Travis had the number one song in the country.

Three Wooden Crosses is one of my favorite songs by Randy Travis and thirteen years ago today it was the #1 song in the country.  With that achievement, it gave Randy Travis his sixteenth Number One single in his career.

Considered Gospel Country, Three Wooden Crosses also garnered some awards.  It was the Song of the Year by the Country Music Association in 2003 and won a Dove Award from the Gospel Music Association as Country Song of the Year in 2004.
