Carrie's the star of the show....

The wins,the dress,the shout out to the boyfriend Mike...Carrie had the game figured out just like she did on American Idol. She is the fan favorite of those she competed against...BUT should the Entertainer of the Year be decided by computer voters ? Kenny last year said NO...I say NO..Change the name of the award to Fan Favorite then fine.......The dress..pure show biz and Porter Waggoner would have been proud....


  1. Late comment: I don't mind Carrie winning for Entertainer. It's not just concert tickets sold. It's TV appearances, how you represent country music, your overall success. She did more shows in 2008 than her fellow nominees. She's had the (or one of the) highlight performances at the last 3 country awards shows (the Eddy Arnold ACM tribute with Brad, Just A Dream at the CMAs, I Told You So this year - brilliant).

    True, it's early in her career and she didn't win this the way Reba did. And Brad deserves to be honored. But the ACM knew full well Carrie was going to win the fan vote when they nominated her. If they didn't want her to win, she wouldn't have. Just look at last year: Rascal Flatts didn't take Entertainer despite campaigning hard for the fan votes.

    IMO Carrie's win is part of the larger story that came out of the ACMs. It's one that the always-savvy Reba has latched right onto as she gets her new single going. Girl power. Youth. That's what's getting ratings, that's what's selling. Did you see the Associated Press article on Reba and her new song? That's what it's about. As long as the talent and the songs are there, and with people like Carrie, Reba, and Miranda they are, we're in good shape.

    Another comment: Isn't it interesting how with country radio going so pop, Carrie's on there covering Randy Travis? Carrie and Brad are the best young hopes for preserving country music history while moving forward, in my opinion.

Funeral Arrangements Set For Craig Morgan's Son Jerry

Jerry Michael Hardy Greer is the son of Craig and Karen Greer. He was 19 years old on the day of his going home. Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room. He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve. He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words, and in our hearts. 
Jerry was preceded in death by grandfather William Edward Horn, grandmother Betty Sue Crockett and cousin Brant Keith Kelley.
Jerry is survived by his parents Craig and Karen Greer; his sister Marisa Davis, niece Bailey and nephew Jameson; his sister Alexandra Beaird, her husband Ryan and nephew Cruze; his brother Kyle Greer and his fiancĂ© Chelsea Rogers; and his brother Wyat…

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

They call her..The Bare Naked Bandit..29 yr Old Lee Grace Doherty

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
