THE BAND PERRY HITS #1 WITH “IF I DIE YOUNG”
PERFORMANCES ON THE AMERICAN COUNTRY AWARDS ON FOX (12/6) & ON ABC'S THE VIEW (12/15)

Nashville,Tennessee (Nov. 29, 2010) – The Band Perry has a new reason to be thankful as their powerful single “If I Die Young” hits #1 on the Country radio charts, according to both Billboard Magazine and Country Aircheck/USA Today powered by Mediabase. The #1 is a career-first for The Band Perry and a label-first for Republic Nashville (Big Machine Label Group), which launched in July 2009 and literally hit the ground running to introduce the trio of siblings to Country Radio.

The Band Perry always says, “it takes a village to break a band,” when referring to the love and support they’ve received from fans, radio and the artist community this year.

Thanking supporters, Kimberly Perry said today, “There is nothing more important to us than family and over the past year our family has grown to include everyone who has encouraged us along the way. We love to play Country music - to be given the chance to share it with others has been a dream come true that we are so grateful for.”

In December, The Band Perry will perform at the AMERICAN COUNTRY AWARDS on FOX (12/6) where they are nominated for three awards and on ABC’s THE VIEW (12/15).

ABOUT THE BAND PERRY: The trio of siblings released a five-song EP on Republic Nashville in April 2010 as their first single, "Hip To My Heart" broke the Top Twenty at Country Radio. The band's second single, "If I Die Young" went to radio as they toured the country, opening for such artists as Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn and Zac Brown Band. Written by the band, "If I Die Young" has now sold one million copies, racked up more than eleven million views on YouTube and topped the Country Radio chart with itsinspirational message of appreciating the time one is given. The Band Perry’s October 2010 album release, THE BAND PERRY, debuted at #2 (Country) and #4 (Billboard Top 200) and has since shipped 300,000 copies. As fans have embraced the family band, so too have their industry peers – TBP received a CMA nominated for Best Vocal Group and received three American Country Award nominations. They have toured most recently with the legendary Alan Jackson and are excited to announce new upcoming tour plans soon.

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.

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…
