Country Music History July 3
Holy patriotic birthdays, Batman! A gaggle of country music folks were born on this date!
1946 Johnny Lee, born in Texas City, Texas. You'll remember Johnny for his song "Lookin' for Love" from the "Urban Cowboy" soundtrack.
One of my favorite singers, Aaron Tippen, was born in Pensacola, Florida in 1958.
Blytheville, Arkansas is the birthplace of Trent Tomlinson, born in 1975. Trent had a huge hit in 2006 with "One Wing In The Fire".
"Stupid Boy" and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely" were penned by songwriter, Sarah Buxton, who was born in 1980 in Lawrence, Kansas.
And in 1980, "Honeysuckle Rose" premiered in Austin, Texas starring Willie Nelson. Not the best movie ever, but great music like "On The Road Again".
