If this is your birthday, congratulations! You are celebrating along with, Alison Krauss, born in Decatur, Illinois in 1971. The fiddler/vocalist leads the bluegrass group Union Station, joining the Grand Ole Opry in 1993 and winning more Grammy awards than any other woman in history. Happy 44th, Alison! Also turning a year older today, mandolin player Neil Perry, born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1990. He comes to prominence as one-third of The Band Perry, the Country Music Association's New Artist of the Year for 2011 and the Academy of Country Music's Vocal Group of the Year for 2013. Happy 25th, Neil!

This Is National Hot Dog Day!

With summer here, it's only fitting that this dog gets its day.

To enjoy this day to the fullest, eat a couple of hot dogs for lunch or dinner. And, don't forget to cook a few on a stick at the evening campfire.

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