ALAN JACKSON’S FIRST AUSTRALIAN TOUR
SELLS OUT IN HOURS -
“FASTEST SELLING COUNTRY MUSIC TOUR IN AUSTRALIAN MUSIC HISTORY”
Overwhelming ticket requests from Aussie country music fans prompts
the addition of a fifth show to Jackson’s tour Down Under

Tickets for Country music artist Alan Jackson’s first ever tour in Australia - scheduled for March of 2011 - sold out within hours of being put on sale Friday morning, Oct. 8 (AEST and AEDT). Ticket sales for the four announced dates - Melbourne (March 4), Sydney (March 7) and Brisbane (March 10 and 11) - sold so quickly that the tour was extended; an additional concert, a third show in Brisbane, has been added to the schedule. Tickets for the newly announced March 12th show in Brisbane go on sale October 14.

“We’re looking at what may be the fastest selling country show or tour in Australian country music history,” said Rob Potts, CEO of Rob Potts Entertainment Edge and co-promoter of the tour. “The excitement level for Alan Jackson’s first tour in our country just can’t be measured. The fans can't believe he's really coming - and ticket sales have proven just how excited they are.”

When reached on his boat about adding another date to the Australian tour, Jackson laughed, “I‘m a Southern man, and that‘s about as far South as we can go – let’s go do it!”

"I've always heard that it's just beautiful down there, and everybody I know that's been there has loved it,” added Jackson. “I’ve heard that the Australian people are really warm and welcome people from the U.S. so generously. That's all I've ever heard - just great things. Great things."

Alan Jackson is one of the most successful and respected songwriter/performers in music, inspiring audiences across several generations with his modern approach to classic country. A 16-time CMA and 16-time ACM Award winner and a GRAMMY winning songwriter/performer, Jackson’s career to date has included sales of more than 50 million albums and 34 #1 hit singles, including ‘Drive’, ‘Chattahoochee’ and ‘Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)’.  On November 22, Jackson will release 34 Number Ones, a career-spanning, double-disc collection featuring all 34 of Jackson’s #1 hits. With 37 songs in all, the project will also include two rare tracks as well as the Zac Brown Band-collaborated hit “As She’s Walking Away.”

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…
