It's the first day of a new month. If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as two names in country music, Sonny James, born in Hackleburg, Alabama, in 1929. Nicknamed the Southern Gentleman, he registers 16 straight #1 singles from 1967-1972, including "Running Bear" and "Heaven Says Hello." He joins the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006. Happy 86th, Sonny! Also celebrating today, Tim McGraw, born in Delhi, Louisiana, in 1967. Married to Faith Hill in 1996, his ear for outstanding songs gains him multi-platinum albums and more than 20 years of hits, including "Please Remember Me," "Back When" and "Live Like You Were Dying". Happy 48th,Tim.

May Day is celebrated around the world and has a number of different meanings. In some countries it celebrates spring and the coming of summer. To communist and socialist countries, it is a celebration for the workers. This is not a national holiday in the United States, except in Hawaii, there it is known as "Lei Day".
