Kenny Chesney # 19 and counting....

Kenny doesnt stop...Live or on the radio.... here's the latest on his new #1..
Nashville/St. Somewhere: When Kenny Chesney decided to head out with buddy Brett James for a night in the islands, he was just looking to have some laughs, hear some music and maybe get into an adventure or two. When they woke up the next morning, realizing they weren't dead, they figured - like all good ole boys'll do - they went “Out Last Night,” from which the lead single from Chesney's Greatest Hits II was born.

And with a second album filled with hits that have defined coming of age over the past 8 y ears - including “Young.” “the Good Stuff,” “Beer In Mexico,” “Summertime,” “Living In Fast Forward.” “When The Sun Goes Down” - already full, it makes sense that the high-energy performer from Luttrell, Tennessee would already be getting started on his next string of #1's right there.

“I've been really lucky,” Chesney says, “I came to town, fell in with the Acuff Rose people - and got a real baptism in what a great song is, what it needs to be and the way to let it breathe. You come up with folks like Whitey Shaffer, and Dean Dillon, Bill Anderson, those guys… and you take the songs pretty serious. Just like I take the fans so serious… the songs are what I bring them, and I want them to be able to live in them, too.”

With it's Calypso undertow and it's good vibrations essence of the carefree and easy life, “Out Last Night” distills everything the 4-consecutive Academy of Country Music and 4-time and current Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year embodies. Having turned his recent stadium shows in Chicago and Dallas into giant footloose Keg In The Closet shows, it's all about making the kind of memories with your friends that define what it means to be young and alive.

Growing up, going out was everything to us,” Chesney says. “And as I've gotten older, not much has changed. When I've got friends down in the islands with us… we're heading out, seeing what kind of people we can meet, fun we can have, jokes we can tell… some things never change.

“And, as a music fan, it's like that, too… We're all talking about what shows we wanna go see… where we wanna go see'em, what they might play. I think when people forget about
that stuff in their lives, they start dying. They just do… and that's one thing I'm not only not gonna do, I'm not gonna let the people who love this music do it, either. So if I'm gonna have a song on the radio right now, I can't think of a better one for it to be.”

With his Corona Extra-sponsored Sun City Carnival splashed across the pages of this week's
Entertainment Weekly, Chesney continues rocking stadiums, amphitheaters and arenas on his shortest tour since becoming a headliner. Still, there's half a summer - and enough shows to more than go around… or out last night… whichever the case may be.

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…
