TAYLOR SWIFT’S SPEAK NOW ALBUM EARNS RAVE EARLY REVIEWS
TAYLOR SETS NEW BILLBOARD CHART RECORD


“TAYLOR SWIFT - SPEAK NOW” TO AIR AS ONE-HOUR NBC PRIMETIME SPECIAL
ON THANKSGIVING NIGHT

Nashville, TN – October 21, 2010 – Speak Now, the highly-anticipated third album from four-time Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift, is set for worldwide release next Monday (October 25th). The Big Machine Records album will be released simultaneously in over 40 countries, and Taylor’s new music is already garnering substantial acclaimfrom some of the nation’s top critics.
The New York Times calls Speak Now “the most musically diverse [album] of her career…. And it’s excellent too, possibly her best.”
“Brilliant. The stone-hearted among [the cynics] who listen to Speak Now will find it hard to complain that Swift somehow stole that Best Album Grammy for Fearless. Entirely self-penned, sans the collaborations of the previous albums, it’s an enormous breakthrough in songwriting maturity….It’ll be decades before she’s holding her peace.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“[“Dear John”] might be her masterpiece to date, or at least the most bracingly, joltingly honest song you've heard any major performer have the nerve to put on record in years. –Yahoo Music
“Since the start of her major label career four years ago, Swift has proved an exemplary role model and a strong songwriter because she is able to tap into her emotions in an authentic way. She’s reached a new high watermark with ‘Mean.’” – The Beat Goes On (Inside Music with Melinda Newman)
“Taylor Swift has again achieved the near-impossible…with a third bundle of melodic, cathartic country-pop. Speak Now is another unrestrained grand-slam. 4 Stars” – Us Weekly
With this week’s release of the track “Mean,” Taylor bested her own Billboard record (which she set last week) for Most Top 10 debuts on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 in the history of the chart. The four songs from Speak Now released early as part of an iTunes rollout all reached #1 on the site’s all-genre downloads chart within hours of release, and paid song downloads from Speak Now now exceed 1.8 million.
Fans can take a look inside Taylor’s Speak Now album – from the recording, to performances, to the behind-the-scenes of release week – on Thanksgiving night, when NBC will air the one-hour primetime special “Taylor Swift – Speak Now.” The program will follow Taylor on her journey from New York City to Los Angeles through interviews, events, and all the in-the-moment experiences of a four-time Grammy winner releasing brand new music, as well as showcase multiple one-of-a-kind performances (including a concert held 30,000 feet in the air as Taylor travels across the country).
Taylor’s official album release party will again be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, who will devote her entire one-hour show to the festivities on November 1st.
Taylor will make several other television appearances to launch the album, including:
The Today Show (NBC) – Tuesday, October 26th
The Late Show with David Letterman (CBS) – Tuesday, October 26th
Live! With Regis & Kelly (ABC, syndicated) – Wednesday, October 27th
Dancing With the Stars (ABC) – Tuesday, November 2nd
Taylor is featured on the covers of the current issues of GLAMOUR and People magazine.

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…
