“Gettin’ You Home” Nominated for CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video

Nashville, TN – RCA Nashville hitmaker Chris Young is climbing the Top 10 with his latest hit, “The Man I Want to Be,” and that’s just one part of the excitement surrounding Young these days, as he earns a 2010 CMT Music Awards nomination, graces the April cover of Nashville Lifestyles, and prepares to hit the road opening for superstar Alan Jackson’s Freight Train Tour.

Young will join Jackson on the road beginning with the April 8 tour kick-off in EsteroFL.  Although Chris has opened a show or two for Jackson in the past, he says he’s thrilled to be able to tour with him for an extended run, in part because he’s a Jackson fan.  Young says, “This is somebody that so many people are huge fans of his music.  But especially for me, the people that I mention when I start saying, ‘I’m a big fan of…,’ he’s always mentioned, just because I love his music; I love him as a songwriter.”

Between dates on the Jackson tour, Young will join Platinum-selling headliner Miranda Lambert, opening a pair of dates May 7 and May 8 on her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour.

In addition to watching for Chris on tour, fans can be looking for him on the cover of the April issue of Nashville Lifestyles, on stands now, as he talks about some of his favorite Music City destinations.

Later this month, viewers can tune-in to see Young as he joins noted author, personality, and the matriarch of country journalism Hazel Smith as her special guest on the April 17 episode of her popular CMT series, Southern Fried Flicks with Hazel Smith 

Chris is currently climbing the country airplay Top 10 with “The Man I Want to Be,” which this week becomes the #1 Greatest Gainer on the Nielsen BDS country airplay rankings, reflecting the greatest airplay increase of any song on the chart.

“The Man I Want to Be” is the follow-up to Young’s #1 blockbuster, “Gettin’ You Home,” which earlier today garnered a 2010 CMT Music Awards nomination for USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year.  First-round fan voting is underway now through May 3 at

Both “The Man I Want to Be” and “Gettin’ You Home” are from Young’s acclaimed sophomore album, The Man I Want to Be, available now.

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…

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…
