Mel Tillis L-L-L-Laughs It Up With Debut Comedy Album,
You Ain't Gonna Believe This...

Show Dog-Universal Music Set to Release Tillis Comedy Album September 21

NASHVILLE, TN – August 25, 2010 – When thinking of Mel Tillis, several descriptions come to mind:  ‘country music legend,’ ‘respected songwriter,’ ‘accomplished actor,’ and ‘world-class ST-T-T-TUTTERER.’   But one of his lesser known talents is about to be revealed to the world:  Mel Tillis is riotously funny!  On September 21,2010 Tillis releases his debut comedy album, YOU AIN’T GONNA BELIEVE THIS..., on Show Dog-Universal Music.

“As one who stutters, humor has very much been a part of my whole life” says Tillis. “As a matter of fact, it’s been my crutch. The stories that I tell on and offstage are 95% true. If they need a little help, I help ‘em out now and again!”

Tillis’ live shows are known for the hilarious gut-busting humor he brings with him onstage. Show Dog-Universal Music  has capitalized on just that, capturing some of the legend’s very best live comedic action resulting in a Tillis treasure trove of laughs.

Earlier in his career, Tillis won Nashville’s coveted Comedian of the Year award on six occasions.  Tillis also took his comedic side to the silver screen, starring in several major motion picture films including Smokey & the Bandit IICannonball RunCannonball Run IIand most recently, Toby Keith’s Beer for my Horses.  Popular television shows like theDukes of Hazzard and Love Boat  were also avenues for Tillis to show off his funny side.

One could say that country music legend Mel Tillis has just about done it all during his 50+ years in the entertainment business.  Throughout his monstrous career, Tillis has recorded more than 60 albums, has had 35 Top Ten singles, was named the Country Music Association’s coveted Entertainer of the Year, is a member of the Grand Ole Opry and holds country music’s highest honor as a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.  He has written over 1,000 songs, 600 of which have been recorded by major artists including Kenny Rogers (“Ruby, Don’t You Take Your Love To Town”), George Strait (“Thoughts of a Fool”), and Ricky Skaggs (“Honey, Open That Door”). Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) named Tillis Songwriter of the Decade for two decades.

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…
