20 Country Music Albums Turning 20 in 2017 [PICTURES]

Think back 20 years — to 1997. Were you celebrating the birth of your first child? Graduating from college? Getting your driver’s license? Maybe you weren’t even a twinkle in someone’s eye yet — or perhaps you were rejoicing in the birth of one of your many grandchildren.

Twenty years ago, Shania Twain was releasing her iconic album Come On Over and heating up the airwaves with “Love Gets Me Every Time.” Sara Evans was making her country music debut. Garth Brooks was becoming a crossover sensation (and still had a baby face!). The year 1997 was filled with new records from artists who were already superstars and those who were just getting started, many of whom are still making music today, 20 years later, in 2017.

Click through the photo gallery above to learn about 20 country albums that are turning 20 years old in 2017. These albums may not be of legal drinking age (yet …), but we’ll raise a glass and sing any of their songs with gusto!
