New song from James Otto

James Otto Shows His Respect And Gratitude
To His Heroes With His New Single
Entitled - “Soldiers & Jesus”

“Soldiers & Jesus” Is From His Upcoming Album,
Shake What God Gave Ya, To Be Released
September 14 From Warner Bros. Records


Nashville, TN –Warner Bros. Records Recording Artist James Otto is showing his respect and gratitude to his heroes with his new single entitled “Soldiers & Jesus” to hit country radio airwaves immediately. The song is from his upcoming album, Shake What God Gave Ya, to be released September 14.
The track was co-written by Otto and Chris Wallin, and co-produced by Otto and Grammy Award-winning record producer and session guitarist Paul Worley (Big & Rich, Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum). Otto’s traditional military upbringing inspired this song, which expresses his deep appreciation for all of the people who have served our country and offered to lay down their lives for others.
 
“I'm part of a military family. My dad was an Army Ranger drill sergeant for 23 years—and my grandfather is a Korean War vet; I served in the Navy myself,” Otto shares. “Also, being a guy who considers himself a Christian, I think this song has a interesting twist:  'there are only two people that have ever given their lives for me, and it has been soldiers and Jesus.'” Otto continues, “Regardless of the politics that can often divide our nation, I think it's always important to support our troops who defend our right to worship as we each see fit.”
 
Otto was most recently on the road opening for Toby Keith and Trace Adkins on the American Ride Tour and will be headlining solo dates this fall with upcoming shows in Florence, KY (9/3); Madison, WI (9/4); Idabel, OK (9/6), and Clarksville, TN (9/10).
 
James Otto is 100 percent country, but he’s also got a heart full of soul. His signature soulful sound broke through with his smash hit, “Just Got Started Loving You”—which was declared the No. 1 country single of 2008 by Billboard. This track is from his album, Sunset Man, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, scored three singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, and remained in the Top 5 Country Albums chart for six weeks after its release in April 2008. Last year, Otto won an ACM and CMA Award in the Song of the Year category as a co-writer for “In Color” (a track that also earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song).

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…
