DIERKS BENTLEY INVITES PATTY GRIFFIN TO JOIN HIM ON
LOPEZ TONIGHT FOR A SPECIAL PERFORMANCE OF THEIR
GRAMMY NOMINATED COLLABORATION “BEAUTIFUL WORLD” 


Bentley Raises $200,000 at Sold Out “Miles & Music” in Phoenix 


NASHVILLE, TN – DEC. 7, 2009 – Seven-time GRAMMY nominee Dierks Bentley has been tapped as the first country artist to perform on late night’s hottest new show Lopez Tonight on Tues., Dec. 8 at 10pm CST on TBS. Bentley will be joined by special guest Patty Griffin for a performance of “Beautiful World,” recently nominated for a 2010 GRAMMY Award in the “Country Collaboration with Vocals” category.

Written by Bentley, Brett Beavers and Jim Beavers, the poignant “Beautiful World” is about recognizing there are two ways to look at your reality and appreciating life despite the daily delivery of bad news.

“It’s a fine line to walk because you don’t want to act like everything is great when it’s not, but the point is that if you choose to believe in something, hopefully your beliefs will lead to action.  Patty’s voice adds so much depth that I can’t even remember what the original version sounded like,” explains Bentley.  “It’s really cool that the Lopez folks are going to let us perform it on their show…it will be the first time Patty and I have ever performed it live together.”

 “Beautiful World” was recently offered as a free download through CMT ONE COUNTRY in support of Bentley’s national “Miles & Music for Kids” charity event.  Check out the exclusive video featuring Griffin here

To that end, Bentley’s “Miles & Music for Kids” charity motorcycle ride and concert series made a stop in Phoenix on Nov. 21 and raised $200,000 for Phoenix Childrens Hospital over the course of the weekend, bringing the 2009 total for both the Nashville and Phoenix events to over $400,000. Bentley was joined by Jessi Colter, Jimmy Wayne, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers and a sold-out crowd of over 3,400 bikers and fans.

The singer/songwriter is wrapping up 2009 with a string of headlining west coast dates this week, hitting the Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA, on Dec. 9, followed by a two-night stand in Las Vegas on Dec. 10 and 11, and Winterhaven, CA, on Dec. 12.

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…
