Trivia # 55: Father of Country Music


Did you know...

... that today is the birthday of the Father of Country Music?
Jimmie Rodgers, known for his rhythmic yodeling, was born in
Meridian, Mississippi, in 1897. Trivia fans: Rodgers' affinity for
entertaining came at an early age, and the lure of the road was
irresistible to him. By age 13, he had twice organized and begun
traveling shows, only to be brought home by his father!
