Owen To Host His Annual Charity Event This Week

Nashville, TN – (December 8, 2009) RCA Nashville recording artist Jake Owen finishes out his most successful year with sold-out shows, a fast-rising single, and an opportunity to give back. This weekend Owen played to capacity crowds in Chicago, Grand Rapids, and Columbia, MO, selling out the popular Joe’s Bar in Chicago, where he surprised fans with an intimate acoustic moment showcasing one of his songs with only his vocal and a cello.

The Chicago Tribune noted, “Owen’s shows have spontaneity and swagger…what you will hear is one of the most underappreciated voices in country music. A husky, rich baritone that seems to suit the lyrics he writes. If he's singing his current hit, ‘Eight Second Ride,’ you'll hear confidence. If he's breaking out the rural celebration of ‘Yee Haw,’ you'll hear his wild side. On ‘Startin’ With Me,’ you'll hear introspection.”

These exciting shows are just another part of Owen's success. His self-penned new single "Eight Second Ride" continues to climb the Country radio charts and sits at #13 this week.

Also this week, Owen will head to his hometown of Vero Beach, FL, Friday for his 4th annual Mardy’s Tennis & Jake’s Music Fest to benefit the Mardy Fish Foundation. He hosts the charity event with his best friend, tennis ace Mardy Fish and it includes a tennis showcase, golf pro-am, and concert. It is sold out for the fourth consecutive year.

Since releasing his debut album, Startin' With Me, RCA Nashville recording artist Jake Owen has celebrated five consecutive hit singles including Top 15 debut single, “Yee Haw,” the Top 10 “Startin’ With Me,” the Top 15 “Something About A Woman,” and his Top 5 “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You.” His current single “Eight Second Ride” just entered the top 15 on the Country radio charts. In the last two years, Owen made his national TV debut on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and has toured non-stop with the biggest names in Country Music including Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn and Sugarland. Jake has received nominations for Country Music Association (CMA) Awards, a GRAMMY Award, and was named “Top New Male Vocalist” at the Academy of Country Music Awards this past April. His sophomore album, Easy Does It, hit stores on February 24, 2009.

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.

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…
