MINDY MCCREADY RETURNS STRONG
WITH I’M STILL HERE 
Iconic Records Releases Testament
To Platinum Artist’s Resilience

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 16, 2010)—Country music recording artistMindy McCready, whose career has lived and died by her own trials and tribulations, resurrects her platinum-selling talent and hard-fast commitment to her music with her latest CD release, I’M STILL HERE.  Available March 23, 2010I’M STILL HERE* (Iconic Records/Linus Entertainment/E1 Entertainment) showcases McCready’s brazen can-do attitude engaged with her subtle, womanly vulnerability.

Since her breakout more than ten years ago with “Ten Thousand Angels” and the monumental success of “Guys Do It All The Time,”McCready has been drenched in public scandals. Despite personal issues and speculation about her new record, she announced her plans to record in May 2008. A pr oven self-help method, music is clearly McCready’s therapy.  Having battled personal demons, Mindy McCready returns from her eight-year hiatus, and in her first album since 2002, she shines.  Her steadfast yet fiercely feminine voice rises again.

“We have always been confident in Mindy’s talent,” 
Michael Fancher, Iconic Records label head, states. “This album shows she’s at the top of her game musically; she’s the best she’s ever sounded and we look forward to reintroducing her music to fans new and old.”

With contributions by producers Christopher Jak, Trey Bruce and Jimmy Nichols, the nine new tracks (along with an acoustic “By Her Side,” her dramatic, orchestrated rendition of “The Dance,” and modernized versions of “Guys Do It All The Time” and “Ten Thousand Angels”) highlig ht the vocal talents and natural ability that made McCready a top-selling female recording artist years ago. Her authentic, raw emotions embrace and resonate each musical sentiment reminding both her fans and critics that Mindy McCready continues to have a home in country music.

The Florida native has remained determined throughout her career. Moving to Music City after high school, McCready shopped demos and played at clubs and juke joints all across town. Her hard work lead to a deal with RCA and in the late 1990s, McCready introduced her brand of saucy country music; her first national recording was the top selling debut by a single female artist, selling more records out of the box than any female star before her.

After years of success in Nashville, McCready became embroiled in an abusive romantic relationship and drug possession charges that landed her time in jail. Her history and battle with drug abuse caught the attention of a television producer; joining the cast of VH1’s"Celebrity Rehab 3" (airing now), she returned to the public eye.  She performs the title track, "I'm Still Here," on Episode 7.

As Mindy McCready sings on the track, “&hell ip;after the storm blew through, It kept me and it saved me. I’m still standing right where you left me,” there is no doubt those words are her truth.  She’s still here.

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.

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…
