City Lights, was recorded for the first time in the late summer of 1957, at the TV studio on campus of the University of Georgia, Atlanta. GA, and was released in March 1958. Price’s version of “City Lights” stalled at No. 2 on Billboard magazine’s C&W Most Played by Disc Jockeys list later that summer. When Billboard released its full country music chart (called “Hot C&W Sides”) on October 20, “City Lights” was the first No. 1 song on the new chart. It remained at the top of the list for 13 weeks, its last week being January 12, 1959.
