Chesney's weekend begin in Bama

Just a few hours until in Oak Mountain Amphitheater show South of Birmingham...then he heads West for Louisiana and Arkansas...Then the re-set rain show...we got this from the KC bunch today:

Dallas: It's not every day an artist gets to play to a crowd in a rainstorm of near-Biblical proportions - and even less likely that the event would occur at a stadium. But for Kenny Chesney, who found himself onstage during a massive downpour at his Corona Extra-sponsored Sun City Carnival Tour's first stadium show at the Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, TX, there was something about the event that struck a resonant chord.

“When the fans saw that I was gonna come out there with them, they came forward to us, too,” Chesney says of the night. “They wanted it as bad as we did… to share that moment, the songs, the whole thing… and I can't tell you what that feeling was like, but I can tell you, I'll never forget it. It's part of the reason I want to go back and do it again: because I wanna finish what we started.”

And even though Chesney had completed almost two-thirds of his 75 minute set, it's not about fulfilling contractual obligation - which had more than happened -- but realizing the moment that had been so special between him and a capacity crowd who'd hung in there through “the worst weather I've ever played in ever… since I hit the road in 1993” that made him wan
t to return. After consulting with his team and working through details and logistics at a lightning pace, the man who's a 4-straight Academy of Country Music and 4-time and current Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year will return to Dallas for a very special show May 17th to say thank you to those fans for being part of an unforgettable night.

To mark that event, Chesney, who lost several hundred thousand dollars of equipment in the storm and is paying the costs of restaging the show, created something tangible fans can remember that night with. A special t-shirt will be available at the
Pizza Hut Park show.

“When I saw the pictures of us onstage, it was pretty powerful in terms of the image,” says the man who sang for almost 50 minutes. “And looking at all of them, thinking about standing onstage with all those fans who stayed right up there with us and singing 'There's Something Sexy About The Rain' - and it really felt like that in spite of the downpour -

w do we go about giving them something that'll capture that? Take them back to the moment?'”“When I saw the pictures of us onstage, it was pretty powerful in terms of the image,” says the man who sang for almost 50 minutes. “And looking at all of them, thinking about standing onstage with all those fans who stayed right up there with us and singing 'There's Something Sexy About The Rain' - and it really felt like that in spite of the downpour - I could totally feel it again.
The t-shirt is basic black and features one of the photos of Chesney in the storm. It will be imprinted with the words “There's Something Sexy About The Rain,” the date of the show and the city.
“It's not like there's a blueprint or a given thing that you do for something like this… but when I was growing up if you saw someone in a t-shirt from a show you were at, you'd know who that person was in a way, you'd sorta nod cause you'd been there, you'd shared that. Well, I can't think of anything that would be more of a bond than standing there in that rain, listening to the music - so for the people at the
Dallas show, this shirt's for you.”

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.

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…
