Worley Whacked in the Head by Flying Road Case!

What started as a harrowing day for country star Darryl Worley trying to get from Nashville to a concert in Miles City, Montana ended with a trip to the hospital and a storm-shortened set, giving new meaning to his hit single "Sounds Like Life To Me."

Darryl arrived home from a show in Chattanooga at 12:30 a.m. yesterday morning and was back up a scant few hours later to catch a 6:00 a.m. flight from Nashville to Billings, Montana and a 140-mile ride to the Southeastern Montana Fairgrounds in Miles City. When he arrived at the Nashville airport, he was informed his plane had been struck by lightning and the flight was canceled. Never one to miss a show, a private jet was arranged to fly him straight to Miles City.

Aside from a lack of sleep, Darryl was ready to put on a show.

He hit the stage just as a large storm blew in. Darryl had just started his second song when a 40-50 mph gust of wind lifted the lid off a road case and hurled it in his direction. Before he had a chance to react, the lid hit his microphone stand and then struck him on the head.

Emergency personnel rushed to the stage and bandaged a gash in his head as well as they could. As he was being transported to the emergency room, Darryl was coherent enough to tell his tour manager, Joe Morris, he would come back and finish the show for any fans who stayed. He received seven stitches at the hospital, signed autographs, took pictures with the staff and headed back to the fairgrounds.

Over 800 people weathered the storm, and true to his word, Darryl returned to the stage and played another 50 minutes for the appreciative audience before the rain and wind finally shut down the show.

Darryl performs at the Lewis & Clark County Fairgrounds in Helena, MT tonight before heading to Detroit for a date at the WYCD Downtown Hoedown on Saturday. His "Sounds Like Life To Me" music video debuted at #6 on GAC's Top 20, and fans can also view the clip at cmt.com and CMT Pure Country. His debut album for Stroudavarious Records, Sounds Like Life, hits stores June 9, 2009.

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…
