Daryl Hall and Wayne recreate their hit country version of “Sara Smile” and a cover of Eddie Floyd’s “Knock on Wood” for 26th and latest edition of groundbreaking web series

NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2009
—Country star Jimmy Wayne’s cover version of Daryl Hall and John Oates’ 1976 hit single, “Sara Smile,” which he recorded with the duo earlier this year, is a country smash, and now serves as the centerpiece for the 26th installment of the acclaimed web series, Live From Daryl’s House, available starting Dec. 15 at <>; . The show will be the first since Daryl Hall and John Oates received their first Grammy nomination in 25 years with a nod in the Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals for “Sara Smile,” from their Live at the Troubadour album on Shout! Factory.

“My experience playing with Daryl on Live From Daryl’s House will go down in my journal as one of my all-time favorite performances, right up there with the Grand Ole Opry, Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks,” said the North Carolina-born singer-songwriter.

Wayne released his self-titled debut in 2003 on DreamWorks Nashville, which went Top 10 country and cracked the Top 100 pop, followed by 2008’s Do You Believe Me Now on the Valory Music Group label, where it peaked at #4 Country and #27 on the Pop chart. His latest album, Sara Smile, hit retail last month, with the title track his seventh Top 40 country single, as well as Daryl Hall and John Oates’ first-ever Top 40 country hit.

Featured in Wayne and Daryl’s seven-song set are versions of “Sara Smile” and “Someone Like You,” a track from Hall’s 1986 solo album, Three Hearts in the Happy Ending Machine, along with a cover of Eddie Floyd’s classic “Knock on Wood.” There are also four Wayne originals, including his #1 Country hit, “Do You Believe Me Now,” “Kerosene Kid,” “I’ll Never Leave You” and “I Didn’t Come Here to Lose.”

Past episodes of Live from Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy, Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, Finger Eleven’s James Black and Rick Jackett and the Bacon Brothers, along with newcomers such as Philly soul singer Mutlu, Canadian techno-rockers Chromeo, MySpace pop-rock phenom Eric Hutchinson, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Wind-up Records’ Chicago rockers Company of Thieves, Bay Area singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson, Charlottesville, VA’s rising Parachute, Chicago rock band Plain White T’s and highly touted tunesmith Diane Birch.

Live from Daryl’s House started with Daryl’s “light-bulb moment” idea of “playing music with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has subsequently been praised by such varied media outlets as Rolling StoneSpinDaily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo and the influential Lefsetz Letter.

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.

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…
