■ REBA DELIVERS A 'DIFFERENT' SOUND WITH "TURN ON THE RADIO": Reba's current single, the in-your-face "Turn On The Radio" is one of the superstar's fastest-rising singles, and it's quite a change from her most recent single, the straight-ahead ballad "I Keep On Loving You".  But as Reba recently told Cowboys & Indians magazine, whatever the style of song is she releases, when she opens her mouth to sing, it will sound Country.  "I’ve gone to both ends of the gamut," the superstar says.  "I’ve done the most traditional country music possible, and then I’ve gone way over the line on doing a lot of songs that were not traditional country music.  I’m going on my 35th year in the music business.  And I think always experimenting and trying to do something different has something to do with why I’ve been in this business as long as I have.  What always appeals to me is the song.  And whether it’s a little more traditional, or a little more contemporary, that’s what I’m going to sing.  Because in my opinion, there’s only two kinds of songs, two categories: good and bad.  Of course, when I sing it, it’s going to be Country.  The instrumentation is what changes it to something that’s more contemporary or traditional."  To read the full article, click here.

■ EVEN WITH AGGRESSIVE TOUR SCHEDULE, JUSTIN MOORE THROWS A PARTY EVERY NIGHT: Justin Moore just wrapped a whirlwind 25 non-stop days on the road, and the rising star only had a few days back in Nashville before departing on an even more aggressive 45 day run of concert dates this week.  And the hard work is just part of the deal, Justin realizes, but even with a grueling schedule, Justin is making sure of one thing: his fans get a party every night he's on stage.  "It's a pretty high-energy show,'' Justin told the Indiana Gazette this week.  "I always tell my band, `It's our job to throw a party for a couple of hours'.  And, we're really having a blast out there.  We've been lucky enough to tour with big acts, legendary acts.  It was cool for me to see how they still bring it every night after bringing it for 20, 30 years.  And then at the same time, there's something really rewarding about playing to a couple thousand people who came solely to see you."  Justin is mixing solo headling shows with his run on Brad Paisley's H2O World Tour through the remainder of the year.

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…

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…
