Hall of Fame: Free shows during CMA Musicfest


The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will launch its new free series of performances by music stars, including a special appearance by country music legend Dolly Parton, during the upcoming CMA Music Festival June 11-14.

The new musical series is called “Live from the Museum Store” and will feature performances and autograph signings by artists such as Dierks Bentley, John Michael Montgomery, Jimmy Wayne and Darryl Worley. Events are free and will take place in the museum store and on the adjacent plaza. They are open to the public and do not require museum admission. Many programs will be recorded for broadcast on CMT or its radio network. The series will continue through the year and beyond, the museum says.

As a highlight of country music week, Hall of Fame member and Tennessee icon Dolly Parton will appear at the museum at 10 a.m. Monday, June 15, signing copies of her latest album, “Backwoods Barbie,” and her new children’s book, “I Am A Rainbow.”

While Parton has a home near Nashville and a studio and office off 12th Avenue South, she rarely makes public appearances in Nashville except to further her Imagination Library charity, bolster tourism and literacy initiatives in the state or support the Hall of Fame.

The CMT-sponsored performance and signing series includes:

• Wednesday, June 10

11:00 a.m., Dierks Bentley
1:30 p.m., Jimmy Wayne

• Thursday, June 11

10:00 a.m., John Michael Montgomery
2:30 p.m., Darryl Worley

• Monday, June 15

10:00 a.m., Dolly Parton

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…
