Birthdays For December 30th
If this is your birthday, congratulations! Here are some names in country music that were also born on this date.
Skeeter Davis, born in Dry Ridge, Kentucky in 1931. She earns her first hit as a 1953 duet partner of Betty Jack Davis, who dies in a car accident. Skeeter goes on to Grand Ole Opry membership and a solo career that peaks with 1962's "The End Of The World".
Also born on the date:
Singer/songwriter John Hartford, in New York in 1937. The multi-instrumentalist works primarily in bluegrass throughout his career, though he creates a pop and country standard by writing Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind".
