It's always exciting to see who will give birth to the first baby of the new year: Will the baby be born at midnight on Jan. 1, or will it be a few minutes after? Will its "Happy Birthday" song be sung along with "Auld Lang Syne"? Several country artists were born in January -- but are any of them New Year's babies?

Country stars such as Dolly Parton, Brantley Gilbert, Kid Rock, Lucinda Williams and more will be celebrating their birthdays during the first month of the year. Other artists in the photo gallery above are no longer living, but their legacies in country music will continue to ring on for years to come.

Click through the gallery to find out which country artists will be blowing out their candles during January. Happy birthday to all of them!
