Happy birthday to these 11 country music 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.
This week, there are four artists who are no longer with us, but you know we always like to remember them on their special day.
Here are your country music birthdays for the week beginning Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017.
