Additionally, a two-hour special aired over the July 4 weekend, with tributes from many of the stars, his successors, his one-time rival Rick Dees and others about the influence of the show and how much they enjoyed listening to the shoe each weekend. Also, tributes were aired during ''Radio/AmericanCountryCountdown'' and its rival program, ''Radio/BobKingsleysCountryTop40'' (with Kingsley reflecting on his working with Kasem during his days with ''American Country Countdown'').
** Many times, a special segment would be aired when a prominent artist passed away. One of the earliest such tributes was to Jim Croce, who died in a plane crash in 1973, and Kasem aired an extensive tribute a month later. Both ''American Country Countdown'' and ''Country Top 40'' have done the same, most recently with MerleHaggard.
