If this is your birthday or anniversary, congratulations! Here are some events that have happened on this date in country music.
1950-The Stanley Brothers record "I'm A Man Of Constant Sorrow" at the Castle Studio in Nashville. Their version of the song provides a template for the version by the fictitious Soggy Bottom Boys, which appears in the film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"

This Is Sandwich Day!
English history reports that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich and a heavy gambler, often spending many long hours in London's gambling parlors. In 1762, he created the sandwich, by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This allowed him to remain at the gambling table for long periods of time. Obviously, the sandwich was named after him.
