Trace Adkins

(Nashville, TN -- October 6, 2010)...Country music star Trace Adkins will soon travel back to the Middle East to visit and perform for troops on what will be his third USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour to the war-torn region.  Dedicated to giving back and extending his gratitude to troops and their families, Adkins stopped by the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC, last month, and spent time with more than two dozen wounded warriors.  During his upcoming USO tour, Adkins will sign autographs, pose for photos and do what he does best... bring country music to life with a stream of insightful lyrics and toe-tapping hits. Note: due to security reasons, the countries and tour dates cannot be released at this time. 


A long time supporter of the U.S. military, Adkins has traveled on two USO tours since 2002, performing for more than 7,800 troops stationed in Bahrain, Iraq and Afghanistan.  He has also received numerous military honors in recognition of his patriotism, including the 2007 USO Merit Award, Wounded Warrior Project's (WWP) 2010 Talkhouse Award and the 2010 Medal of Honorfrom the Daughter's of the American Revolution

Today, with more than 14 years of making music under his belt, Adkins has gone on to sell more than 10 million records worldwide and chart 28 hit singles.  One of country music's top headlining and in-demand artists today, Adkins has not only achieved reality TV stardom on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice," but has also dabbled in acting, written a book and even ventured into the comic book world with the launch of LUKE McBAIN, a four-part comic book series.

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.

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 The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time.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…
