If your birthday is today, congratulations! Here's a couple of names in country music that share this date with you. Singer/songwriter Kevin Welch, born in Los Angeles, in 1955.  He pens such hits as Gary Morris' "Velvet Chains," Moe Bandy's "Till I'm Too Old To Die Young," Don Williams' "Desperately" and Ricky Skaggs' "Let It Be You". Happy 60th, Kevin!  Also celebrating today, Colton Swon, born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in 1988. He sings high harmonies for The Swon Brothers, a duo that signs with Arista following a season on the NBC music series "The Voice." They earn their first hit in 2014 with "Later On". Happy 27th, Colton!

This Is National Thriftshop Day!

Today, is a day for a bargain or two!

"Thriftshops" is a term for stores that sell items deeply discounted merchandise. It's not always the highest quality, but the price is right. You know these stores better today as discount department stores and dollar stores.

Prepare to "shop until you drop", today!

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