Birthdays And Anniversaries For September 1st + Emma M. Nutt Day
If this is you birthday, congratulations! Three country music names were also born on this date. Harold Jenkins, born in Friars Point, Mississippi, in 1933. As Conway Twitty, he leaves a pop/rock career in 1965 to pursue country music, racking up hits consistently for more than 20 years. He joins the Country Music Hall of Fame posthumously in 1999. Drummer Steve Goetzman, born in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1950. He joins Exile, whose mix of country, rock and gospel nets hook-filled 1980s hits such as "Woke Up In Love," "She's A Miracle" and "Crazy For Your Love". Happy 65th, Steve! Charlie Worsham, born in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1985. A singer, songwriter and guitarist, he earns his first hit in 2013 with "Could It Be." He also plays on Dierks Bentley's "I Hold On" and Thomas Rhett's "Beer With Jesus". Happy 30th, Charlie!
