Also born on this date:
Billy Dean, in Quincy, Florida, in 1962. He tells people his birthday is April 2nd, so they won't think of him as an April Fool. He nets a series of smooth hits in the 1990s, including "Somewhere In My Broken Heart," "Billy The Kid" and "Only The Wind".
Happy 54th, Billy!
One more country music birthday today.
Hillary Scott, born in Nashville, in 1986. The daughter of Linda Davis, she becomes the female voice in Lady Antebellum, a harmony-based trio noted for such hits as "Need You Now," "I Run To You," "Downtown" and "American Honey".
Happy 30th, Hillary!
This Is April Fools Day!
Some of the origins of this day, date back to the days of the Roman Empire. This day is all about playing harmless and in good taste jokes, tricks or gags on unsuspecting individuals. Please give them some thought before you carry them out. Make sure they are not dangerous and won't hurt anyone's feelings. Go for it and have FUN!
