If you have a birthday today, congratulations!  There are two country artists that share this date as well.  Brantley Gilbert is born in Jefferson, Georgia, in 1985. He scores his first hit, "Country Must Be Country Wide," in 2011, following with "You Don't Know Her Like I Do" and "More Than Miles." He also writes the Jason Aldean hits "My Kinda Party" and "Dirt Road Anthem".  Happy 30th, Brantley!   John Michael Montgomery is born in Danville, Kentucky, in 1965.  His recordings of  "I Love The Way You Love Me," "I Swear" and "I Can Love You Like That" made him one of the top country balladeers of the 1990s.  Happy 50th, John Michael.
