CAPITOL RECORDS NASHVILLE CELEBRATES THE SUCCESS OF 3RDANNUAL “STREET PARTY”

Nashville, TN – October 14, 2010 – A little rain couldn’t stop thousands of fans from packing Demonbreun Street near Music Row last night for the third annual “Capitol Street Party.” The free and open to the public music event, which was emceed by NASCAR's Michael Waltrip and Capitol Records President & CEO, Mike Dungan, didn’t disappoint as the event offered up performances from some of the label’s biggest superstars, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan and surprise performer, Keith Urban, as well as new acts, Jennette McCurdy, Troy Olsen and Walker Hayes.

Capitol Nashville artists put on an incredible show for the fan-packed street. The love and mutual respect among the artists was apparent during several collaborations throughout the night. Surprise guest Keith Urban joined headliner Darius Rucker during his set. The two performed an acoustic version of Urban's hit "Raining on Sunday" as well as a rockin' version of The Steve Miller Band's "The Joker." Luke Bryan later joined Darius for a cover of the classic "Family Tradition." 

“Bigger and better, cooler and funner, by all accounts, a smashing event!” Capitol President & CEO Mike Dungan exclaimed. “Hats off to SVP Marketing, Cindy Mabe, and her talented staff!” 

A popular feature that returned from the last Capitol Street party was the opportunity for fans to text live to screen for the chance to win various prizes including; autographed Darius Rucker CDs, Street Party t-shirts and an autographed guitar signed by all of the night’s performers. This year, powered by Mozes, there were close to 3,000 texts sent.

The PENCIL Foundation was on site last night in a yellow school bus collecting brand new school supplies to benefit Metro public school students. They received over 5,000 items, everyone who donated an item got to meet Jennette McCurdy and get an autograph!

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…

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…
