Take a step back in time and remember the year when compact discs (CDs) out-sold vinyl records for the first time and Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam collaborated on "Streets of Bakersfield."
The year was 1988, and with the return of GAC's (Great American Country) original series "The Year" viewers will get a chance to do a little time traveling of their own with every show.
Season 2 of "The Year" features host Mark Wills taking a look back at the pop-culture trends and trivia of the late eighties, nineties, and the early twenty-first century all while showcasing the best of country music videos of the year.
Country music has always honored its rich history, and Wills puts a different spin on remembering the country artists who had the hottest tours, the most controversial videos, and who was just starting the road to stardom with their debut video.
Set against a backdrop of fun facts about world events, pop culture, and entertainment news, The Year takes a look back at those moments that defined us then and shape us now. . .the music and memories of years past.
"Viewers are really going to have a blast looking back and remembering the years we cover on the show," said host Mark Wills. "I think they will also get a kick out of seeing some of their favorite artists' fashion train wrecks of the eighties and nineties!"
With the start of the second season the former Mercury recording artist Mark Wills will release in September his eighth studio album "Familiar Stranger". It will be his first release on AGR Television Records. (The release date for the US & Canada may be different)
