If it's your birthday today, congratulations! You share the same date as two names in country music. Songwriter/guitarist/producer Randy Scruggs, son of Earl Scruggs, born in Nashville, in 1953. His credits include George Strait's "Heartland," Vince Gill's "Go Rest High On That Mountain" and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "Will The Circle Be Unbroken, Volume 2".  Happy 62nd, Randy. Also a year older today, Lonestar's keyboard player Dean Sams, born in Garland, Texas, in 1966. Winners of the Academy of Country Music's Best New Group or Duo for 1995, the band earns hits with "Tequila Talkin'," "No News" and the pop crossover single "Amazed". Happy 49th, Dean.

This Is National Watermelon Day!


It's a big day for this big fruit! Why not take some time to celebrate this sweet and tasty treat. True, watermelon is over 90% water, but it sure tastes great.

As an extra added feature of the celebration, remember, you can spit the seeds!

Now let's P-A-R-T-Y!
