Single Sales Of 500K+ Earn an RIAA Gold Certification for "If I Die Young" as the CMA-nominated Trio of Siblings Vie For "Vocal Group Of The Year" and Gear Up for Alan Jackson Tour
 Oct. 7, 2010 (NASHVILLE, TN) -  Republic Nashville's The Band Perry will debut their first full-length album, THE BAND PERRY, on October 12, 2010.  With their single, "If I Die Young" now officially certified as a Gold single by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000, the band celebrates this impressive milestone as they prepare for their album debut and continue earning distinctions from fans and the music industry alike.
It is rare that such accolades and honors come so quickly to a breaking band, yet even before the release their first album, the band has a Gold single, "If I Die Young" racing up the charts (currently #13 on the Country Charts) and selling 40K downloads a week.
As audiences double with each performance, the trio of siblings - Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry - are preparing to tour with the legendary Alan Jackson in November and are basking in the glow of their first CMA nomination for "Vocal Group of the Year." This is the trio's first nomination for a national music award and the first nomination for an artist on the Republic Nashville label.
The Band Perry will attend the 44th Annual CMA Awards on November 10, 2010.
THE BAND PERRY signed with Republic Nashville in the summer of 2009.  In April 2010, their five-song EP was released at the same time that their first single, "Hip To My Heart" broke the Top Twenty at Country Radio. The band's 2nd single, "If I Die Young" went to radio as their touring schedule brought them from one end of the country to another, opening shows for such artists as Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn and Zac Brown Band. Since then, The Band Perry has earned a CMA nomination for Vocal Group of the Year, maintained digital single sales of 40K units a week and sold in excess of 500,000 total units, qualifying them for RIAA Gold certification. They've announced tour dates with Alan Jackson this Fall. Written by the band, "If I Die Young" has an inspirational message of appreciating the time one is given - the band has received volumes of letters, emails and YouTube testimonials from fans from 7 to 70 about how the song helped them reflect on their life in a positive way or heal them from the loss of a loved one.

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…
