Brad Paisley Scores in Boston..More Stadium Shows in 2011?

Saturday night Brad Paisley played the first stadium show of his career, playing to a sold-out crowd at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts, home of the NFL’s New England Patriots. The country superstar has performed his music in many different kinds of venues over the years, but being at Gillette Stadium took it to a whole new level for him, as Brad admitted, ”To be standing there in a stadium hearing these songs reverberate off the concrete is pretty wild.” Playing the first stadium show of his career was a huge thrill for the West Virginia native, who was reminded Saturday night just how far his career has taken him: “I’m here without a road map of any kind…so, I’m certainly in more shock today than anybody.” 
  • The show was just the latest stop on Brad’s H2O World Tour, and provided fans with a reminder of the music they’ll get to re-live when Brad releases his Hits Alive album package this fall.
  • Brad’s sold-out show included an all-star line-up that served up nearly six hours of continuous music for fans who began arriving and tailgating at the stadium earlier in the day. Others on-hand included Sara EvansJason AldeanDarius Rucker, and Easton Corbin.
 In Massachusetts after his Saturday night performance, Brad Paisley fills us in on what he’ll remember from his first-ever stadium show. “It’s feeling each of these songs that I’ve written over the years, in this setting, in a place like this. To be up there standing and singing a song like ‘Alcohol,’ that was written with the kind of bombastic hugeness that I kind of pictured as being that kind of song — that would sound good in a stadium full of people holding beer. You know, to think of songs like that, and the same with ‘Welcome to the Future,’ in a city like Boston which is where America was essentially born in many ways, here or Philadelphia, and to be standing there in a stadium hearing these songs reverberate off the concrete is pretty wild.”
 On Saturday night, Brad Paisley admitted it was hard to believe his was performing to a sold-out stadium. “My dreams as far as my lifetime goal, early on, was to get to what I call the level of tour musician. Which was to have a tour bus to pile onto it to go play a show somewhere, other than where I lived, and then pile off of it, do the show, get back on it, and go to another town. And really stop there, that was what I wanted to do, and have hit songs that people knew. That was really it. I really felt like if I ever reach that league, that league of person, that has a hit song that people know their name, and go see them sing, I would be fine. That was the goal. I’m so far past where I planned to be that I’m here without a road map of any kind. I didn’t necessarily ask for directions on the way. So, I’m certainly in more shock today than anybody.”

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.

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…
