If this is your birthday, congratulations!  You are sharing this date with a couple of names in country music.  Kathie Baillie, of Baillie & The Boys, born in Morristown, New Jersey in 1951. She sings lead on seven Top 10 singles for the trio from 1987-1990, including "Oh Heart," "Long Shot" and "(I Wish I Had A) Heart Of Stone".  Happy 64th, Kathie!  Also on the date, Guitarist and organ player Coy Bowles  born in Thomaston, Georgia, in 1979. He becomes a member of The Zac Brown Band, noted for such hits as "Chicken Fried," "Goodbye In Her Eyes," "Toes" and "Whatever It Is".  Happy 36th, Coy!  

It's National Cherry Pie Day!


This is the day for all lovers of cherry pie to eat their fill for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  I believe most of us are familiar with President George Washington and the cherry tree.  Not only was cherry pie the favorite of George, but also of Queen Elizabeth I.  So today, eat up and enjoy!

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