If this is your birthday, congratulations! you share this date with two names in country music. Singer/songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman, born in Harlingen, Texas, in 1956.  Primarily a pop recording artist, however, she writes many country hits, including Faith Hill's "This Kiss," Alabama's "Here We Are," Lorrie Morgan's "Five Minutes" and Trisha Yearwood's "You Say You Will". Happy 59th, Beth! Also celebrating with you today, John Berry, born in Aiken, South Carolina, in 1959. The strong-voiced singer rises in 1994 with his Grammy-nominated "Your Love Amazes Me," following up with such melodic hits as "You And Only You," "She's Taken A Shine" and "What's In It For Me". Happy 56th, John.
