Nashville, TN – Reprise Recording Artist Blake Shelton wins his first Academy of Country Music Award. Last night, Shelton’s world changed as he won an ACM Award in the Vocal Event Of The Year category with his longtime friend Trace Adkins for their No. 1 single, “Hillbilly Bone.” The award was given to Shelton and Adkins in an off-camera award presentation last night by Bob Romeo, Executive Director of the Academy of Country Music.
"This has been an amazing year for me,” said Shelton. "If you would have asked me ten years ago when I started out that I would have an Academy of Country Music Award and a performance on the award show, I would have thought you were pulling my leg.”
Shelton continues, “I have to thank Trace above everyone. Winning an award with your friend makes it even more special. My managers Brandon and Narvel Blackstock who have helped guide me on this wonderful and wild ride. Of course everyone in my band and crew. A lot of these guys have been with me from the beginningCountry radio for consistently supporting me and playing my songs. The Warner Music Nashville family for not being afraid to try new things with me.  Scott Hendricks, my producer, who found "Hillbilly Bone." And of course the best for last....my fans. I love you guys!!”

The new album also came in at No. 2 on the Top Country Albums Chart. Scott Hendricks produced the album and it features the No. 1 title track with Trace Adkins. Startin’ Fires, Shelton’s last album, featured the single “I’ll Just Hold On,” which broke into the Top 10 on the country singles charts and was the follow-up to his back-to-back multi-week No. 1 singles "She Wouldn't Be Gone" and "Home."  Shelton's hits also include his five-week No. 1 debut single, "Austin," and two additional multi-week No. 1 singles, "The Baby" and "Some Beach."

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.

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…
