Dave Haywood’s birthday falls the day after the Fourth of July, so growing up, he got to celebrate it along with the U.S.A.’s independence.
“We grew up going on family trips to the beach,” the Lady Antebellum member recalls in a statement from his label. “We would always go to Hilton Head, South Carolina and always take trips for my birthday….watch fireworks.
“I think my best memory would be my birthday party when I was 9 or 10 years old. We went to the batting cages and I remember I was swinging so hard, it was 100 degrees outside, I was swinging in the batting cage and ended up passing out right there in the batting cage!
“You’re trying so hard to hit the ball, you’re a kid and you really don’t realize how much water you should be drinking and I was that kid who was on the ground in the batting cage, people fanning and pouring water all over my face. Happy Birthday to me and America.”
