If this is your birthday, congratulations! Here's a couple of names in country music celebrating along with you. Pam Tillis, born in Plant City, Florida, in 1957. The daughter of country singer Mel Tillis, she fashions a career of her own with a series of hits in the 1990s, winning the Country Music Association's Female Vocalist in 1994 and joining the Grand Ole Opry in 2000. Happy 58th, Pam! Also a year older today, Jerrod Niemann, born in Harper, Kansas in 1979. A writer of Garth Brooks' "Good Ride Cowboy," he collects a platinum single for his first hit as an artist, the 2010 release "Lover, Lover." He adds subsequent hits with "What Do You Want," "One More Drinkin' Song" and "Drink To That All Night". Happy 36th, Jerrod!

This Is Cousin's Day!


This day honors your Aunt and Uncle's kids! The one's who are probably close to your own age. If it wasn't for them, just think how long family reunion events would seem.

Today, get together with your cousins and be sure to take lots of pictures.

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