If this is your birthday, congratulations. You just happen to share this date with several names in country music. Joe Bonsall, born in Philadelphia, in 1948. In 1973, the ex-gang member becomes a tenor singer in the gospel quartet The Oak Ridge Boys, who soon shift into country music, using him as a lead voice on such hits as "Elvira," "Bobbie Sue" and "Love Song." The Oaks join the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2015. Happy 67th, Joe!  Also today, George Strait, born in Poteet, Texas, in 1952. The authentic cowboy becomes a voice for traditional country beginning in 1981, accruing more than 25 gold albums and membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Happy 63rd, King George! Finally, David Nail, born in Kennett, Missouri, in 1979. The soulful vocalist collects his first hit single in 2009 with "Red Light," adding further hits with 2011's "Let It Rain" and 2013's "Whatever She's Got". Happy 36th, David!
