Birthdays And Anniversaries For June 1st + Flip A Coin Day
If this is your day to celebrate, congratulations! it's also a big day for country music artist, Ronnie Dunn, born in Coleman, Oklahoma, in 1953. The lanky singer teams with Kix Brooks to form the harmony-laden Brooks & Dunn, whose mix of honky tonk with rock influences makes them the dominant duo in country from 1991 until their split in 2010. They will reunite this summer along with Reba for shows in Las Vegas. Happy 62nd, Ronnie! On this date in 1964-Dolly Parton moves to Nashville a day after her high school graduation and meets her future husband, Carl Dean, at a laundromat. In 1974-Ronnie Milsap collects the first #1 country single of his career with "Pure Love," written by Eddie Rabbitt. In 1994-Restless Heart performs at the opening of The Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville after a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Marty Stuart and Tanya Tucker. Among the acts that become the house band at the venue: Lonestar, Ricochet and Sons of the Desert.
This Is Flip A Coin Day!
This tradition dates back to Julius Caesar. Caesar would take a coin and flip it to make decisions where the right choice was unclear. The correct answer was "heads", which of course carried his image on the coin. Why not use this method of decision making for all decisions, and for everything you do today.
