SUPERSTAR MARTINA MCBRIDE JOINS FRIENDS COAST TO COAST
FOR STAR-STUDDED EVENTS
 
NASHVILLE, TN (October 7, 2010) – At Tuesday night’s All for the Hall benefit, 4x CMA Female Vocalist Martina McBride had the Bridgestone Arena crowd on their feet with her stunning performance of her hit “Broken Wing” and a cover of Reba’s “Is There Life Out There.”  Next week, she joins some of Nashville’s finest at the Ryman Auditorium on October 12th for The Recording Academy’s GRAMMY Salute To Country Music honoring Loretta Lynn and on October 15, McBride is part of David Foster’s Foster & Friends concert at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
 
The Foster & Friend’s concert event has McBride joining a who’s who of incredible voices including Seal, Donna Summer, Charice and many more who will perform songs either written, produced or connected to the 15-time GRAMMY winner. The concert will be recorded by THIRTEEN for WNET.ORG for PBS broadcast on GREAT PERFORMANCES, and also will be released as a concert CD/DVD on 143/Reprise Records.
 
In November it’s CMA Awards time for the superstar vocalist who is nominated once again for CMA Female Vocalist of the Year. The 44th Annual CMA Awards will be held in Nashville and airs 8 p.m. EST on ABC.  In December, McBride will headline the Nashville Symphony’s annual “Home for the Holidays” concert. Due to ongoing repairs at Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the concert will be held at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena on Friday, December 10, 2010, at 8 p.m.
 
“I say it over and over, I’m so blessed to enjoy such an amazing career and to get the opportunity to be part of some of these magical moments in music history,” noted Martina.
 
Those magical moments this fall have also included the Grand Ole Opry’s historic first show back at the Grand Ole Opry House. The evening was filled with one-of-a-kind Opry moments including McBride’s duet with Connie Smith for Smith's signature hit "Once A Day."
 
"The Grand Ole Opry is the heart and soul of country music. It is something that we as artists dream of being a part of. I'm happy I was invited to participate in that historic night," says McBride.
 
Just weeks earlier, McBride sang with Stevie Wonder, Dave Stewart and Natasha Beddingfield as a featured performer on the Stand Up To Cancer ‘s one-hour, commercial-free telecast that aired on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, Discovery Health, E!, G4, HBO, HBO Latino, MLB Network, Showtime, The Style Network and TV One and over 30 online streaming partners like AOL, Yahoo! and YouTube. The SU2C broadcast was dedicated to the over 12 million U.S. cancer survivors illustrating how groundbreaking research can change the tide in the fight against the disease.
 
McBride is a four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year and GRAMMY® award-winning recording artist with more than 18 million in album sales and 24 Top 10 singles, including six Number Ones. Among her hits are such empowering songs as "Independence Day," "This One's for the Girls," "Anyway" and "Ride," all of which have contributed to her status as one of country music's preeminent female vocalists.

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.
Jerry is survived by his parents Craig and Karen Greer; his sister Marisa Davis, niece Bailey and nephew Jameson; his sister Alexandra Beaird, her husband Ryan and nephew Cruze; his brother Kyle Greer and his fiancé Chelsea Rogers; and his brother Wyat…

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…
