Nashville, TN (February 17, 2010) ---- Dove Award winning group, Austins Bridge, is gearing up to release their highly anticipated sophomore project, Times Like These, May 4, 2010.  The CD was produced by Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts).  At the same time, Austins Bridge has signed with Jeff Robert and Associates for booking and Patton House Entertainment for management. 

"Rarely does an artist come along that is so gifted, genuine and extremely talented,” says DeMarcus.  “It was an absolute joy to make this record, as not only can these guys sing their tails off, they are truly anointed.  Austins Bridge has a big, bright future."

"It was not only a privilege and an honor to work with Jay DeMarcus,” says Austins Bridge, “but it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to absorb an experience that cannot be taught in any classroom or conference.”  “We went into every studio session like little sponges, ready to soak up every morsel of information we could.  Jay brings not only a lot of talent to the recording process, but a lifetime of proven success as well.  We can't wait to get this project out to a listening audience and we look forward to continuing to work with Jay on future projects."

“When all of us at Patton House Entertainment heard the new music from Austins Bridge, we knew we wanted to be part of this band’s career,” says Andrew Patton, President, Patton House Entertainment. “Not only is Austins Bridge extremely talented but the hearts of these guys really put the meaning behind the lyrics.  When you combine those elements with their powerful live show….you’re talking a major hit act here.” 

 “We are excited to be representing Austin's Bridge,” says Randy Humphries, Artist Representative, Jeff Roberts & Associates.  “When I saw them for the first time a few years ago I thought they were an amazing band! The vocals were incredible and I thought their music would be relevant to the fans of Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban. When I first heard Times Like These, I knew Jeff Roberts & Associates had to be involved in their career and we are looking forward to great things in the future with Austin's Bridge.”

Times Like These features the strong harmonies of Austins Bridge that spotlight Christian lyrics with a deep Country/Bluegrass sound.  The first single from the project, “Mercy,” will be going for adds at Christian radio February 19th.   The song is an uplifting anthem to mercy being in your life when the going gets tough. Mercy never leaves when others walk away/Mercy's there for you so you/don't ever have to be afraid/When you're feeling hopeless, abandoned, and lost/Mercy pleads your case before the cross/Mercy never leaves.  Band members Baird and Rivers wrote two songs for the project, “Good Times” and “Hold Onto Jesus,” with Rivers also co-writing, “Dash Between The Dates.” Jay DeMarcus lent his songwriting efforts to the CD by co-writing the title track and “Angels.”  The strength of the new album has already garnered the honor of “Best Bets 2010: Faces To Watch” by Billboard magazine.

Austins Bridge broke onto the national music scene with their debut self-titled album in 2007 and the strength of the project resulted in the band winning the 2008 Dove award in the category ofBluegrass Song of the Year, “He’s In Control.”  They also received two additional 2008 Dove nominations for New Artist of the Year and Country Album of the Year.

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.

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.

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…
