The Tuesday K-LAW Classic was the #1 country song 30 years ago - February 26th 1983. It was co-written and originally recorded by George Jones. George released 'Why Baby Why' in late 1955 and it became his first chart song, peaking at #4 on the country chart. In '56 it was a #1 for Red Sovine and Webb Pierce. After Charley Pride took it to #1 in 1983, it became one of the few songs to reach the top of the country chart with two different versions.

Check out the video below. George and Charley sing the song together, with a little help from some friends.
