Music Flashback: Nelly’s “Country Grammar” was released on This Day in 2000!

As if I couldn’t make myself feel any older, The Nelly Takeover began on this day when he dropped “Country Grammar” in 2000! Be it that I am from good ol’ St. Louis, I remember everyone and their mama saying they were in Nelly’s videos or that they knew Nelly! I did know a “Nellie” but it was my big sister!
Wait, I do know “Big Nelly,” Cornell Haynes Sr., he is my cousin Renell’s best friend! I digress.
This album would start a trend of guys wearing bandaids under their eye while rocking Air Force 1’s and Nelly’s Vokal line. Great times!
Did ya’ll know that “Country Grammar” went DIAMOND?! No matter how you try to spin Nelly’s situation, the numbers don’t lie and Nelly had the rap game on lock and went on to have two more platinum selling albums after “Country Grammar”. 
Here’s to you Nelly and thank you for introducing the world to St. Louis!
