One of the most popular country singers of the 1970s, Moe Bandy released his first hit song “I Just Started Hatin’ Cheatin’ Songs Today” in 1972, which would eventually climb to a top 20 hit on the national scene. Bandy released several popular songs in the next few years, including “It’s a Cheatin’ Situation,” which became a #3 hit and won the Song of the Year award from the Academy of Country Music.
Bandy released another Top Ten hit, “Americana,” in 1988, which became the campaign theme song for presidential candidate George Bush. After Bush was elected, Bandy played at the Presidential Inauguration as well as playing at the White House twice in 1989.
