I Got Your Country Right Here Hits Stores March 30, 2010
(Nashville, Tennessee...) -- March 29, 2010 --Grammy, CMA & ACM Award-winning artist Gretchen Wilson's fourth studio album, I Got Your Country Right Here, hits stores on Tuesday, March 30, 2010, and she will perform her "Work Hard, Play Harder" hit single on the "CBS Early Show" on Wednesday morning, March 31. Gretchen produced the album with Blake Chancey and John Rich, and the disc is the first release on her recently-launched Redneck Records label.
 The three-star album review in this week's People Magazine called the title track "butt kicking" and the "Earrings Song," penned by Rivers Rutherford, Monty Criswell, "a catfight-ready stomp." Michael McCall writes, "Her first album for her own company ratchets up everything she's accentuated from the start: Blustery southern rock touting a hard-partying, one-of-the-boys attitude and an in-your-face allegiance to blue-collar ideals" in his Associated Press review.
Gretchen co-wrote two songs on the album and turned to Nashville's heaviest hitters on the other nine cuts. In addition to Rutherford and Criswell, Al Anderson, Dave Berg, Becca Bramlett, Rodney Clawson, Dallas Davidson, Bob Dipiero, Tom Hambridge, Terry McBride, Vicky McGehee, John Rich,  Chris Stapleton, Jeffrey Steele, Sam & Annie Tate, Bobby Terry all contributed songs on the album. "The songwriters are the creative heart and soul that is the beginning of this project," said Gretchen.
In addition to the 11-song album, Gretchen is offering a unique Deluxe Edition Package, which includes the I Got Your Country Right Here CD, a 32-page full-color photo book containing never-before-seen pictures of Gretchen at work and at play, a poster-size replica of the U.S. Constitution and a 3' x 5' "I Got Your Country Right Here" flag in a special collector's box. The special package is offered only through www.RedneckRecords.com, and Gretchen is autographing the first 500 copies.
Gretchen recently wrapped up her two-month I Got Your Country Right HereClub Tour, which showcased her and her band in smaller venues from coast to coast. The dates kicked off in Florida and Georgia, moved through Ohio, Michigan and Indiana, out to Oklahoma, Kansas, Arizona, Vegas and LA and then back through Texas before winding up in Norfolk, Virginia. In between, she made it home for Country Radio Seminar, a performance benefitting her daughter's school and a jet trip to Dallas to sing the National Anthem at the NBA All-Star game.
Gretchen exploded onto the country music scene in 2004 with her smash hit "Redneck Woman." She has won virtually every award for which she's been nominated and racked up three #1 albums. Her autobiographical book, "Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life," landed her on the prestigious New York Times Best Seller List.            
A dedicated single mother to her nine-year-old daughter Grace, Gretchen went back to school and earned her GED in 2008. She has since become an advocate to help spotlight the funding needs of adult education programs and the adults on waiting lists hoping to further their education. She spoke to a Congressional subcommittee early last spring about the need for continued funding, and in September she was presented a 2009 National Coalition for Literacy Leadership Award at a reception at the Library of Congress. Following Gretchen's touching acceptance speech, Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) was brought to the stage to deliver a statement she had prepared and read that morning in front of the 110thCongress honoring the accomplishments of Gretchen Wilson as a mother, recording artist and a leader in the advancement of adult education and literacy.

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.

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…
