LUKE BRYAN CELEBRATES FIRST #1 WITH “DO I”

Bryan’s “DOIN’ MY THING” Headlining Tour Wraps Up In HisHome State of Georgia

Nashville (December 14, 2009) – Capitol Nashville recording artist Luke Bryan has a lot to celebrate this holiday season. The first single, “Do I,” off his new album Doin’ My Thing, has landed at #1 on the 12/14/09 Country Aircheck/MediaBase chart, the first of his career. The video spent an amazing 7 consecutive weeks at #1 on the GAC Top 20 countdown.

The song, co-written by Bryan and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, garnered 37.2 million audience for the singles chart of 12/7/09.  That is the fifth largest weekly audience of any single on the BDS/Billboard chart this year.

Earlier this month, Bryan wrapped his first hugely successful Miller Lite sponsored headlining tour, “Doin’ My Thing Tour,” in his home state of Georgia. During the tour he performed a special show for his hometown of LeesburgGeorgia as well as kicking off his inaugural Farm Tour show in StatesboroGeorgia – over 8,000 fans attended both. These shows are specially created concerts put together as a way to give back to a charity or organization in local farming communities. These special one-off shows will continue throughout Bryan’s career with additional dates already planned for 2010 and will be announced in 2010.

Bryan released his second album, Doin’ My Thing, for Capitol Records Nashville landing at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and #6 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 album chart selling over 57,000 albums in its first week of release, more than doubling the first week sales of his debut album I’ll Stay Me in 2007. Bryan’s first single off the new album, his co-written song “Do I,” is the highest charting single of his career.

In January Bryan will hit the road again performing his own headline dates as well as guesting on Jason Aldean’s Wide Open Tour.

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…

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…
