Birthdays For February 2nd + Groundhog Day
Congratulations, if this is your birthday! You are celebrating along with two artists in country music. Singer/songwriter, Blaine Larsen born in Tacoma, Washington in 1986. He releases his debut album shortly before his 19th birthday, landing his first hit with a song about suicide, "How Do You Get That Lonely." He also co-writes George Strait's hit song, "I Gotta Get To You". Happy 29th, Blaine! Howard Bellamy is born in Darby, Florida, in 1946. Along with sibling David, The Bellamy Brothers net over 25 hits from 1979-1990, employing baby-boomer themes and double entendres. They earn over a dozen CMA nominations as a duo, but never win. Happy 69th, Howard!
It's National Groundhog Day!
On this day, the groundhog wakes up after a long winter's nap and goes outside of his den. Legend goes, if he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If he does not see his shadow, that means that spring is just around the corner. Pray for clouds!
Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
