Birthdays For March 17th + St. Patrick’s Day
If this is your birthday, congratulations and be sure to wear your GREEN! There are two country artists sharing this date with you. Paul Overstreet, born in Antioch, Mississippi, in 1955. The singer/songwriter was a member of Schuyler, Knobloch & Overstreet before going solo. He also writes numerous hits for others, including "On The Other Hand" and "Forever And Ever, Amen", for Randy Travis. Happy 60th, Paul! Also celebrating today, Keifer Thompson, born in Miami, Oklahoma, in 1973. He becomes one-half of Thompson Square, a husband-and-wife duo that earns Vocal Duo of the Year from the Academy of Country Music in 2012 and '13. Happy 42nd, Keifer!
It's Saint Patrick's Day!
Today we honor the Patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, who brought Christianity to the Emerald Isles. Today we celebrate Irish history, ancestry, traditions and customs.
Over 34 million Americans are of Irish descent. That's about 9 times the population of Ireland.
It's goes without saying, everyone is a little Irish on Saint Patrick's Day. So, wear your green and drink plenty of green beer today!
