Kenny off the NYC Hard Rock

Orlando, Fla., June 19, 2009 – Hard Rock International is bringing its worldwide Ambassadors of Rock Tour to New York! Kenny Chesney, the four-consecutive Academy of Country Music® and four-time and reigning Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year, will perform at Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square on Tuesday, September 15th, as part of Hard Rock’s 2009 Ambassadors of Rock Tour, a global concert series featuring top artists and bands.

Known for his high energy performance, Chesney is currently out on his Sun City Carnival Tour – which will see the biggest North American ticket seller this century in any genre play a dozen stadiums. With his Greatest Hits II marking his 9th #1 Country Album debut, Chesney collects the songs that have come to be the soundtrack of a generation coming of age right now: “When The Sun Goes Down,” “Summertime,” “Living In Fast Forward,” “Anything But Mine,” “The Good Stuff,” “Beer In Mexico,” “I Go Back,” and his current #1 “Out Last Night.” Having been deemed “Entertainer of the People” by The Los Angeles Times, Chesney’s Hard Rock Ambassadors of Rock Performance will be a more intimate performance, reflective of the man beyond the million-ticket-selling phenomenon.

“As part of this global program we are hosting iconic artists around the world and we are thrilled to bring one of the world’s biggest and most successful stadium acts to the crossroads of the world – our New York Cafe,” said Sean Dee, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Hard Rock International. “Kenny Chesney’s history of stel lar, high-energy performances is the perfect complement to an already impressive international tour lineup.”

“Music that connects is music that rocks,” Chesney explained. “To me, the Hard Rock Ambassadors of Rock Tour is about the experience of music, of coming together, of how blinding it can be when it’s good… whether it’s Bruce Springsteen or Nine Inch Nails, Neil Young, the Killers or us. I’m honored to take part in this because that place where music and people come together to really let go, well, that’s what we’re all about.”

Committed to its “Love All, Serve All” creed, Hard Rock will donate proceeds from Chesney’s New York appearance to benefit PLAN!T NOW – an organization that empowers coastal residents to mitigate disasters in severe storm and hurricane-prone regions by being prepared. PLAN!T Now provides outreach, resources and connections for residents in coastal regions in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean, to create a dialog and understanding of the power of preparedness. Kenny Chesney is proud to serve on PLAN!T Now's board of directors. Learn more at

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 fiancé 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…
