If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as two names in country music.
Sharon White, of The Whites, born in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1953. Along with father Buck and sister Cheryl, she participates in several bluegrass-tinged early-'80s hits and joins husband Ricky Skaggs on the duet "Love Can't Ever Get Better Than This".
Shown here with husband, Ricky Skaggs. Happy 62nd, Sharon!
Also turning a year older today, Tracy Byrd, born in Vidor, Texas, in 1966. Pledging a love for traditional country, he emerges in 1993 to record a series of hits, including "Lifestyles Of The Not So Rich And Famous," "Watermelon Crawl" and "The Keeper Of The Stars".
Happy 49th, Tracy!
This is National Maple Syrup Day!
This is the day to enjoy and appreciate this delicious American treat. This sweet and unique flavor originated right here in America. Native American Indians were the first to harvest and boil the sap of the maple tree into a thick syrup.
