Sammy Kershaw, Kenny Rogers, Shenandoah Featured in Triple-Shot Tuesday

Next week is Valentine’s Day, so dozens and dozens of roses will be sold. Our Triple Shot today is a reminder that maybe you shouldn’t just give roses on February 14th, but make an effort throughout the year to show your loved one how you feel.

Sammy Kershaw’s “I Buy Her Roses” was written by Roger Brown and Glenn Ray.  The song was on Sammy’s 1991 debut album “Don’t Go Near The Water.”  It wasn’t released as a single to radio.

Kenny Rogers’ “Buy Me a Rose” was written by Jim Funk and Erik Hickenlooper. It was released in October 1999 as the third single from his album “She Rides Wild Horses.” Upon reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in May 2000, the song made Kenny (who was 61 years old at the time) the oldest country singer to have a No. 1 hit. Alison Krauss and Billy Dean were featured on the song as well.

Shenandoah’s “Two Dozen Roses” was written by Mac McAnally and Robert Byrne. It was released in August 1989 as the fourth single from their album “The Road Not Taken.” The song was their third No. 1 hit.

Join us next week on the big day for a Triple Shot of songs that’ll put you in the mood to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
