If you have a birthday today, congratulations.  You share this date with country music singer, songwriter and guitarist, Brad Paisley.  Brad was born in Glen Dale, West Virginia in 1972.  He has blended a great sense humor along with sensitivity throughout his career and that has landed him membership in the Grand Ole Opry, as well as a Country Music Association Entertainer of the year award.  Happy 42nd, Brad!!
