I'm trying to edit my 1 Second a day type of video and I'm unsure how to put a date below which increases every second?

The text would look something like this: "April 6 2016", then after a second it would change to: "April 7 2016".

Any idea how I could do it?

In Sony Vegas you can use Text Wizard from Vegasaur Toolkit. It can easily create various counters. Vegasaur has free 30-day trial, so just install it and go to menu View > Extensions > Vegasaur > Timeline > Text Generation Wizard. Please note that the appearance of the text (font, color, size, etc.) is determined by the selected preset.
