Birthdays For August 11th + Son And Daughter Day
If it's your birthday today, congratulations! You are celebrating along with country singer, John Conlee, born in Versailles, Kentucky, in 1946. After careers as a mortician and a disc jockey, his 1978 single "Rose Colored Glasses" starts a 10-year string of blue-collar singles. He joins the Grand Ole Opry in 1981. Happy 69th, John!
Here's a look back at some country music happenings from this date: In 1951, Hank Williams hits #1 in Billboard's country chart with "Hey, Good Lookin'". In 1972, Elvis Presley files for divorce from wife, Priscilla in Santa Monica, California. In 2001, Blake Shelton picks up his first #1 single in Billboard with "Austin," which remains at the top for five weeks.
This Is Son And Daughter Day!
This is not a day of gift giving....except for the gift of time. If your son and daughter are still young and live at home with you, remember that time goes by quickly. So, spend as much of today and everyday in their company.
