She's one of the most successful country singers of her generation and one of the genre's most polished performers, but 10 years ago today (June 10, 2005), Carrie Underwood was just a shy kid who was about to debut on the Grand Ole Opry.

Today we're going to offer five of the most requested songs from the 98.1 Country Classic Radio Show. We're featuring Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, a duet from George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Randy Travis and Tanya Tucker.

Randy Travis was among the guests at Joe Nichols’ concert at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth on Saturday (Nov. 22). The country legend visited with Nichols, and even treated the ‘Yeah’ singer’s family to a barbecue dinner.
