It turned plenty of heads when the news broke that Academy Award winner Gwyneth Paltrow has a country single, but when the heads turned and the ears tuned, people have been cheering Gwyneth’s song, “Country Strong,” as a winner. It’s the first single from the soundtrack to her upcoming film, also called Country Strong, about a country singer named Kelly Canter, played by Gwyneth. In the current Fall Movie Preview double issue of Entertainment Weekly, Gwyneth says that her husband, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, helped introduce her to such classic artists as Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, but she’s developed her own love of country and bluegrass, too.
  • Gwyneth told Entertainment Weekly that she had to share a bit of musical enlightenment with a few New York friends who questioned some of her recent listening habits, to which she declared, “I’m like, ‘It’s Miranda Lambert! You need to get into it, people!’”
  • Vince Gill and Patty Griffin also lend their voices to Gwyneth’s “Country Strong” single, which will of course be featured on the original motion picture soundtrack to Country Strong, with the album release set for October 26th.
  • The feature film, Country Strong, also starring Tim McGrawLeighton Meester, and Garrett Hedlund, will premiere on December 22nd.
 Gwyneth Paltrow talks about why she enjoys country music so much. (:38)“The thing I love about country music is I love the authenticity of it. Like, I like how the lyrics are often very stripped-down and just real. And I find it refreshing that there’s not a lot of irony in it, and it’s just, like, straight from the heart. And I also love bluegrass, and I just think it’s…there’s a beauty to it that’s combined with a technical skill that I just find awe-inspiring, and I just…I’m very impressed with the skill level and also with the beauty of the songs.”

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…

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…
