If this is your birthday, congratulations!  You have lots of company from country artists that share the same date as you.  Charley Pride, born in Sledge, Mississippi, in 1938. After pursuing a career in baseball, he becomes the first African-American to have consistent success as a country singer, notching more than 50 hit records on his way to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Happy 77th, Charley! Also celebrating today, Phillip Sweet, born in Pocahontas, Arkansas, in 1974. He joins Little Big Town, a quartet whose  strong harmonies are essential to its signature hits, "Boondocks,"  "Little White Church," "Tornado" and "Pontoon". Happy 41st, Phillip! And finally, Jaron Lowenstein, born in Tucker, Georgia, in 1974. With his twin, he's part of the pop duo Evan & Jaron before earning a country hit with "Pray For You" in 2010 under the name Jaron And The Long Road To Love. Happy 41st, Jaron! 

This Is National Agriculture Day!


Here's a big salute to American Agriculture and all the people who play a role in it. Take some time today to think about all that goes into bringing the food you eat to your table. Celebrate big time, and eat well and thank those farmers and ranchers for all they do.
