Happy birthday to these nine country entertainers who are celebrating birthdays this week. We have provided a link to the artist website, where you will probably be able to find a Facebook or Twitter link where you can wish each a Happy Birthday, when their special day rolls around.  Whenever no website is available, we try to post a link where you can find more information about the artist.  .Two of these artists are no longer with us, but as always, we wanted to remember them on their special day.
