If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share this date with one on leading ladies of country music. Connie Smith, born in Elkhart, Indiana in 1941. The Grand Ole Opry powerhouse debuts with 1964's "Once A Day," making hits consistently for nine years. In 1997, she marries fellow Opry star Marty Stuart. In 2012, she joins the Country Music Hall of Fame. Happy 74th, Connie! Another name in country music turns a year older today. Record producer Brent Maher, born in Great Bend, Kansas, in 1942. His credits include The Judds' "Why Not Me," Dottie West's "A Lesson In Leavin'," Michael Johnson's "Bluer Than Blue" and Tanya Tucker's "Some Kind Of Trouble". Happy 73rd, Brent! 

This is National Creamsicle Day!  


Today, make sure you take time to celebrate this tasty summer cooler!

With the heat and humidity of August, a creamsicle is an excellent choice. Just make sure to eat your creamsicle quickly before it melts.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
