Fan Fair/CMA Music fest events start stacking up....

Nashville loves a good time, and fans and industry folk will have plenty to celebrate on Wednesday, June 10, at the performance and 20th Anniversary celebration of Alan Jackson’s incredible career in the country music business. Jackson is one of country music’s biggest stars and most celebrated songwriter/performers. For 20 years, he has been one of its most influential proponents of real country music. This standing room only event at Nashville’s Cadillac Ranch is free to fans and invited guests.

It was 20 years ago this month that Jackson signed his recording deal with Arista Nashville, kicking off one of the most critically acclaimed and consistently successful recording careers in music, with albums sales now in excess of 50 million. From his debut HERE IN THE REAL WORLD (1990), which produced four Top 5 hits, to his most recent GOOD TIME, which has so far produced three #1 hits, Jackson creates music with the kind of emotional turns and clever musical details that satisfy critics and fans alike. You don’t need to look further than this week’s charts for a demonstration of his unfailing relevancy where “Sissy’s Song,” the fourth single from GOOD TIME, becomes the 50th Alan Jackson single to hit the Top 10 (and climbing) of the country music charts.

With more than 100 major industry awards to his credit, and with 18 albums and 34 #1 singles, Jackson’s career inspired CMT.com’s Chet Flippo to write, “He hasn't lost a step on the competition. There isn't another male country artist of any age right now who can match him for what he does best. And that's to write, sing, record and perform country songs of consistent high quality and relevance.”

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.

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…
