There are many -- too many -- country stars who have had cancer or have been personally affected by it in some way. The truth is, almost everyone knows someone who's battling against the horrific disease, and it does not discriminate based on age, fame, fortune or even good health.
My favorite sign of spring arrived this week with the return of baseball. When it warms up, a perfect night is when I'm grilling while watching a Twins game. In honor of America's pastime, my Country Throwback remembers an Alabama favorite.
