Throwback Thursday: 8.30.12

Alan Jackson’s version of “Pop a Top” is well-known among today’s generation of country fans, and before hearing Jim Ed Brown on the Opry, I didn’t know that Alan Jackson wasn’t the original singer of that song. Jim Ed Brown’s version peaked at number 3 on the Billboard chart in 1967 long before Alan Jackson’s version hit 32 years later.

Since we’re now in the year 2012, both versions can be considered a throwback! I hope you enjoy these two versions of a classic country song.
