MULTI-PLATINUM SINGER /SONGWRITER JEWEL
TO PERFORM TWO CHARITABLE CONCERTS AT NASHVILLE’S LEGENDARY
 BLUEBIRD CAFÉ ON APRIL 28TH

All Proceeds From the Concert Benefit “Project Clean Water”
A Charity Founded and Supported by Jewel


Recording artist and philanthropist, Jewel, will perform two shows at the legendary Bluebird Café in Nashville, TN, to benefit the charity she founded over a decade ago, Project Clean Water. Jewel will perform a very special acoustic set at both 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.  Tickets are available at the Bluebird Café’s website www.bluebirdcafe.com

“I’m thrilled to be performing at the Bluebird and supporting a cause so dear to my heart, Project Clean Water,” said Jewel.  “So many country songwriters I admire have performed at the café.  It’s wonderful to perform some of my favorite compositions in such an intimate setting and help those in need at the same time.”

Jewel founded Project Clean Water in 1997Having experienced homelessness as a teenager, Jewel became ill and couldn’t afford to buy the bottled water she needed for her sick kidneys.  She then realized it was difficult to obtain clean water in the United States, and discovered it was a huge problem globally.  She has been relentless in her efforts to bring safe water to those in need and create awareness of clean water shortages around the world. 

Project Clean Water has recently partnered with Virgin Unite and the Voss Foundation to create the "Give A Drop" campaign. Donations of $5.00 can be made by texting the message "DROP" to phone number 85944. Money raised through text donations will benefit the partnership, which is currently working in Pel in the Dogon region of Mali, where 40 water retention structures were recently completed. This spring, work will also begin to help rural villages in southeast Ethiopia expand their access to clean water.

Maintaining her country roots, Jewel is currently finishing her second country music album scheduled for release in June 2010.  The upcoming project is the follow-up album to her #1 Billboard-Charting Perfectly Clear, which was released in June 2008. 

Jewel  lives on a working ranch in Stephenville, Texas with her husband, World Champion bull-riding superstar, Ty Murray.

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.

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…
