Chris Young Earns His First CMA Award Nomination!

Young Co-Hosted the Announcement of Seven of the 12 CMA Award Categories, Including His Nominated Category,
New Artist of the Year   

Nashville, TN – RCA Nashville chart-topper Chris Young co-hosted this morning’s announcement at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium of the final nominees in seven of the 12 categories for The 44th Annual CMA Awards, and Young also walked away a nominee, earning his first CMA nomination:  New Artist of the Year.

Reacting to the news, Young said, “It’s just a great feeling.  To be recognized like this as an artist, it means a lot to you, especially me, being my first CMA nomination.”  Young remarked that as excited as he is about the recognition, he feels a real source of pride in the people around him who’ve brought him to this point.  “Probably the thing that I’m most proud of is just really how everybody else has treated my career.  I’ve always been really excited and just proud to be on RCA and proud to be able to have my music heard,” Chris offered.  From the fans to all the people who work with him, Young says their continuing belief in him makes the good moments like this a shared celebration.  “I think about how excited I am, and then I’ll have people come up that are just as excited as me.  I’m just really lucky that I’ve got people like that in my corner.”

The news is yet another part of an incredible year for Chris, who marked another first this month with the RIAA Gold Digital Single certification of his #1 smash, “Gettin’ You Home.”  The song was the first of Young’s back-to-back #1 singles, with Chris topping the chart for three weeks this summer with “The Man I Want to Be,” the title track to his current album.

After touring with Alan Jackson earlier this year, Young has been on the road this summer on the Rascal Flatts Nothing Like This Tour.  Young will re-join Alan Jackson for the fall leg of his 2010 tour, also featuring The Band Perry, beginning November 4 in Sacramento.    

Chris is on the radio and video airwaves now with “Voices,” the newest hit from his acclaimed sophomore album, The Man I Want to Be.

Fans can tune-in for all the excitement of The 44th Annual CMA Awards, as the show airs live from Nashville on Wednesday, November 10, at 8 PM ET, on ABC Television.

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…
