Birthdays And Anniversaries For June 20th + Summer Solstice
If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as 2 names in country music. Chet Atkins, born in Luttrell, Tennessee, in 1924. The consummate guitarist, he develops a successful career as an instrumentalist, but also runs RCA Records' country division and helps create the Nashville Sound, joining the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1973.
This lady is turning a year older today.
Anne Murray, born in Springhill, Nova Scotia, in 1945. Her warm, easy-going vocals snare a number of pop-slanted successes from 1970-1986, including "Snowbird," "You Needed Me," "Shadows In The Moonlight" and "Now And Forever (Me And You)".
Happy 71st, Anne!
Here's someone else celebrating today.
Drummer Chris Thompson, born in Bend, Oregon, 1980. He provides the backbeat for the Texas-based Eli Young Band, which earns gold singles with "Crazy Girl," "Always The Love Songs," "Drunk Last Night" and "Even If It Breaks Your Heart".
Happy 36th, Chris!
