If your celebrating on this first day of the New Year, congratulations.  Here's some country music history for this date.  1959 - Johnny Cash performs at San Quentin prison. Merle Haggard is in the audience.  1992 - Dwight Yoakam falls off his horse in the middle of the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California, when the saddle strap breaks. Someone from the crowd repairs the strap, and Yoakam is back in the saddle again.   

It's New Years Day!!

from Catherine Jones

Last night it was all about the party.  Today it should be all about relaxing and enjoying the start of a bright and promising new year.  Consider it a new beginning.  It's time to be with family, after all you haven't seen your mother in-law since last year.  Hey don't forget about all those football bowl games!

Do you make any New Year's resolutions?  Lot's of folks do.  They are very easy to make but much harder to to keep.

Remember to take some time today and enjoy everything about New Year's, because it only comes around once a year.

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