FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
ACM NOMINEE JOEY+RORY
ANNOUNCE NEW STUDIO ALBUM
 
Husband/Wife Duo Kick Off U.S. Spring Tour With Zac Brown Band!
 
Nashville, Tenn. (February 10, 2010) --  Husband/Wife duo Joey+Rory have an exciting year planned with a 2010 ACM nomination under their belt already, a U.S. arena tour this spring and the upcoming release of their sophomore album.  Set for an early summer release (exact date TBA), the CD is simply titled Album #2  and is produced by legendary, Grammy award-winning producer Carl Jackson who also produced their debut album. That album titled The Life of a Song debuted #10 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and remained on the charts for 50 weeks selling 200,000 copies. 
 
"This is our sophomore album and the title cut is a humorous take on the pressure put on artists when they make their second album,” explains Rory. “Rather than worry about it or avoid it, it's more our nature to just face it head on, and even find the humor in it.” 
 
Known for bringing beautiful harmonies, authenticity and romance back to country music, the Vanguard/Sugar Hill recording artists will hit the road this spring with Grammy award-winner Zac Brown Band for the “Breaking Southern Ground” tour. Joey+Rory will not only perform but will act as emcee for the tour. 
 
"We're beyond excited about going on tour with the Zac Brown Band,” says Joey. “Over the last year, we've become good friends. They're the real deal. They don’t compromise. We love that.”  
 
“And although there are differences in our music,” adds Rory. “We're cut from the same cloth.”  “Probably some ol' worn out jean material that feels good and has been around a while,” laughs Joey.
Coming off the heels of their success in 2009, Joey+Rory are nominated for a 2010 Academy of Country Music Award for Top New Vocal Duo. The award is fan-voted and ballots open on February 26th.  Last year CMT named them one of the Top 10 Artists of 2009 and they garnered a string of nominations including CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, ACM’s Top Vocal Duo Award and CMT Nationwide Insurance ‘On Your Side’ Award.
 
Joey+Rory's debut single "Cheater Cheater" was not only their first Top 30 hit at country radio but also became a nationwide Top 10 Dance Club hit. The single peaked at #3 on iTunes Top Country Album Chart with over 400,000 downloads.
 
The duo and their music are featured in a number of national television ads for Overstock.com. Their 2009 tour took them coast-to-coast and overseas.  Last month, they performed for fans and film industry insiders at the prestigious 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
 
When not performing, writing music or in the studio, Joey visits with patrons and lends a hand at Marcy Jo’s Mealhouse, a restaurant she and her sister-in-law co-own outside of Nashville.  Rory heads to music row where he continues to pen award-winning hits at his publishing company.  His current hit is the #14 “A Little More Country Than That” recorded by Easton Corbin. Recent awards include 2009 ASCAP Most Played Songs for “I Will” by Jimmy Wayne and “You Can Let Go Now” by Crystal Shawanda. Other hit songs include the multi-week Number One songs  “Some Beach” by Blake Shelton, “Someone You Used to Know” by Collin Raye and “The Chain of Love” by Clay Walker.

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.
Jerry is survived by his parents Craig and Karen Greer; his sister Marisa Davis, niece Bailey and nephew Jameson; his sister Alexandra Beaird, her husband Ryan and nephew Cruze; his brother Kyle Greer and his fiancé Chelsea Rogers; and his brother Wyat…

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…
