And Happy Birthday to Johnny Cash, born on this date in 1932. He is one of only a handful of artists to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the Country Hall Of Fame, and the Gospel Hall Of Fame.
– The very talented and fun country group Southern Halo stopped by for an interview and in-studio performance. They are a super traditional country group, and you really hear those Mississippi Delta roots in their music.
– Kelsea Ballerini dropped a new single from her sophomore album Unapologetically.
