If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as two names in country music. Emmylou Harris, born in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1947. After attaining commercial success, she edges into what becomes an alternative country career, gaining numerous Grammy awards and a 2008 induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Happy 68th, Emmylou!  Also celebrating today, Buddy Jewell,  born in Osceola, Arkansas, in 1961. After singing on demos for a number of years in Music City, he wins the first "Nashville Star" TV competition in 2003, leading to a recording contract and a gold album. Happy 54th, Buddy!

This Is National Peanut Butter And Jelly Day!!


This special day is all about celebrating that wonderful treat know as the "peanut butter and jelly sandwich". PB and J is a favorite lunchtime meal of Americans of all ages. In fact, some kids could practically live on it. So, enjoy one today!

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