At Sheplers western wear, we know that summertime is the best part of the year for being outside. The hot summer months make for having a barbecue in your backyard and just spending time with family and friends. It also makes for the best time to celebrate a birthday! If you have a summertime birthday, you may share a birthday with a country star! There are a ton of country stars that celebrate birthdays in the summer months.
Starting off the summer birthdays are some definite fan favorites including: Lee Brice, Chris Young, Blake Shelton and Kellie Pickler. June 20th is one day of the month where several country stars share the exact same birthday. Anne Murray and Chris Thompson of the Eli Young Band, along with several others, were all born on June 20th! If you share a special day with these country music birthdays, throw a big western themed party with a hefty playlist starring all the birthday artists and you!
Now for the month of July, some of country’s current biggest stars are celebrating their big day. July 3rd is popular day in country music as Sarah Buxton, Trent Tomlinson, Aaron Tippin and Johnny Lee are all born on this day. Maddie Marlow celebrates her birthday on July 7th, with Toby Keith on July 8th and Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts celebrating on July 10th. July birthdays continue with The Band Perry’s frontwoman, Kimberly, turning another year older followed by Luke Bryan a few days later. To end the month are Zac Brown, Neal McCoy and Martina McBride.
While August rounds out the summer months, there is definitely no slowing of country music birthdays. August starts with Hank Cochran and Terri Clark followed by Mark Wills, Mel Tillis, Jimmy Dean and Buck Owens. August comes to a close with Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks, Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay, Colton Swon of the Swon Brothers, Kacey Musgraves and Kenny Rogers.
Happy Birthday, Summer Stars!
