Country Stars + Americana Artists With April Birthdays


The fourth month of the year, April includes many exciting occasions and observances, including the Boston Marathon, Record Store Day, Earth Day and April Fools’ Day, along with everyone’s least favorite day: Tax Day. But April also is the birthday month of a bunch of country stars.

Sharing a birthday month with these fun (and not-so-fun) events are Willie Nelson, whose 90th birthday is approaching; Emmylou Harris; Chris Stapleton; Carly Pearce and more. It is also the month to celebrate the lives of some of the genre’s greatest artists who are no longer with us, including Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard and Glen Campbell.

With spring blooms, budding trees and longer days, April is a great month to be born. Find out who celebrates their birthday in April — and if you have an April birthday, perhaps you share it with one of country music’s great artists. Happy birthday to them — and to you!
