If this is your birthday, congratulations! You happen to share this date with several names in country music. Ronnie McDowell is born in Fountain Head, Tennessee, in 1950. Following his 1977 tribute to Elvis Presley, "The King Is Gone," he reaps more than a dozen Top 10 hits through 1987, including "Older Women" and "You're Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation". Happy 65th, Ronnie! Songwriter Dean Dillon is born in Lake City, Tennessee, in 1955. He writes the George Strait hits "Ocean Front Property," "The Chair" and "Unwound," plus "Miami My Amy," by Keith Whitley; "Set 'Em Up Joe," by Vern Gosdin; and "By Now," by Steve Wariner. Happy 60th, Dean! Kenny Chesney is born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1968. After a 1993 launch, he becomes one of the biggest hitmakers of the early-21st century, regularly winning Entertainer of the Year trophies and selling out stadiums in his annual summer concert treks. Happy 47th, Kenny!
