Gibson Acoustic Introduces the Randy Scruggs Advanced Jumbo
– Nashville’s Finest  Go-To Flat-Top

Nashville, TN…February 22, 2010… Gibson Acoustic announced the launch of the highly anticipated Randy Scruggs Advanced Jumbo acoustic guitar. With a bevy of GRAMMY awards, three Country Music Award Musician of the Year titles, and production and songwriting credits to rival any of the most influential names in Nashville, Randy Scruggs’ resume practically reads like a history of contemporary country music itself. The son of legendary banjo virtuoso Earl Scruggs, Randy grew up amid Nashville’s elite, made his first professional guitar recording at the age of 13, and was a first-call session guitarist and producer before he had left his teen years behind. Put it all together, and Scruggs’ heart beats with the pulse of country music—much like that of his beloved Gibson Advanced Jumbo, long the go-to flat-top for Nashville pickers.
MSRP:  $4514



The Randy Scruggs Advanced Jumbo is an elegantly appointed acoustic guitar from the luthiers of Bozeman, Montana. Made to the proportions of the Advanced Jumbo round-shouldered dreadnought, with solid premium Sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides, an advanced scalloped X-brace, vintage sunburst finish, and up-market adornments such as abalone trim and rosette and mother-of-pearl fingerboard crowns, the Randy Scruggs Model packs the one-two punch of looks and tone that make it a fitting testimony to its namesake’s achievements. Add to these its bone nut and saddle and a Fishman Matrix pickup system to translate all that stellar tone to the masses, and it’s a guitar primed to take place of pride at the center of a collection, or in the hands of a hard-working artist. Only 100 Randy Scruggs Model guitars will be produced by Gibson, and each one comes with a formfitting hardshell case with plush purple lining, an owner’s manual, and Gibson’s Gold Warranty.

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…
