When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

VALENTINE'S DAY
You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly.

It could be argued that these behind-the-scenes types are the true talent — or at the very least, they’re responsible for adding the polish to the stars, allowing them to shine brighter.

Music production is big business in Nashville, with hundreds of recording studios in the area. Despite all the talent in the region, there are a relatively small number of producers behind a majority of the bigger Christian releases. So maybe it’s time you became acquainted with the pros behind the music. Many of them are also successful songwriters. Several of them play a wide variety of instruments. And a few of them even do double duty as performers in their own right. Some of these names may not be familiar to you, but they certainly should be.
