If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as one of the greatest voices in country music. Jim Reeves, born in Panola County, Texas, in 1923. Combining a warm tone with perfectionist phrasing, he becomes one of country's strongest balladeers. He enters the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1967, three years after a plane crash takes his life. It's also the birthday of Rudy Gatlin, of The Gatlin Brothers, born in Olney, Texas, in 1952. Behind songwriting lead singer Larry Gatlin, the trio earns a Grammy for 1976's "Broken Lady," beginning a 12-year string of harmony-packed successes. Happy 63rd, Rudy!
