LA Hits #1 with "I Run To You"


ASHVILLE, TENN - July 13, 2009 - Capitol Nashville trio Lady Antebellum has the No. one country song in the nation this week as their third single "I Run To You" strides to the top of both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts today. This marks the award-winning group's first No. one single.

Written by all three members of the group (Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott), along with veteran Music Row writer Tom Douglas, the song also claims the No. one spot in Canada this week, another first for the band.

"This is absolutely surreal," said Haywood from Boise today. "A number one is something you never think will actually happen, and it is certainly something that we will never forget! We are so overwhelmed from the support of the fans and country radio, and we want to give a special shout out to Tom Douglas for pushing us as songwriters and challenging us to put these beautiful lyrics into a song."

The song, hailed by Billboard as "a sonic feast" for its "gorgeous melody [and] shimmering harmonies," has inspired over 450,000 downloads of the single to date and has helped double weekly sales totals of the band's self-titled debut album.

Lady Antebellum first sent ripples through the country music community last spring when their debut album landed at No. one on the Billboard charts, smashing digital sales records and eventually going on to be certified GOLD by the RIAA. The buzz continued as the trio celebrated early success with its first two hit singles "Love Don't Live Here" and "Lookin' For A Good Time." Lady A has gone on to earn the coveted titles of ACM "Best New Vocal Group" and CMA "New Artist of the Year," along with two GRAMMY nominations and three CMT Awards nominations.

Lady Antebellum is currently on the road with Kenny Chesney playing arenas and stadiums across the country, and will join Keith Urban for their first trek to Canada later this fall. Fans can catch the trio performing on the two-hour special CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock on Aug. 31 on ABC.

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…

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…
