NashvilleTN – To say the least, 2010 has been a big year for Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann! 

Niemann just received news that Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury (Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville) made the New York Times Top 10 Albums of 2010 compiled by Jon Caramanica.  “His major-label debut [is] full of startlingly sturdy country songs, emotionally affecting and unafraid of being clever,” the music critic gives as basis for his year-end nod for the album, which was co-produced by Niemann and Dave Brainard.  Upon release of the album on July 13th, Carmanica cheered in a review, “In sum, Mr. Niemann is a gentleman outlaw, but mostly he’s a history-minded technician on this thoughtful, magnetic record.”

As year-end charts come to a close, Jerrod Niemann remains the only major label debut artist in 2010 to score a #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.  When first-week sales forJudge Jerrod & The Hung Jury approached 34,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan, Lady Antebellum’s six-month streak atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart came to an end.  Not only did his album earn the #1 country slot, it landed an impressive debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 album sales chart, entering at #7.

On the singles front, Niemann had an impressive 2010 as well!  Within a month of the release of his critically-acclaimed album, the single “Lover, Lover” peaked at #1 on both Billboardand Country Aircheck charts, and the smash hit, now with sales in excess of 700,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan, has received RIAA certification as a Gold Digital Single. His current, chart-climbing single, “What Do You Want,” which Niemann co-penned with Richie Brown and Rachel Bradshaw, is #21 on Billboard and #22 on Country Aircheck airplay charts.

Additional highlights of 2010 included a nomination for CMA “New Artist of the Year,” 3 nominations for the American Country Awards, a slot on Gary Allan’s Get Off On The Pain Tour, his debut on the Grand Ole Opry along with subsequent appearances, an AquaPalooza 2010 performance with Brad Paisley at Lake Travis near Austin, Texas, and much, much more.

With his sights set on 2011, Jerrod Niemann is hitting the road nationwide!  On January 15, the country hitmaker returns to Liberal, Kansas, for a special homecoming concert to benefit the booster club of his alma mater, Liberal High School The 1,000 seats at the high school auditorium sold-out within 14 minutes in early December – not bad for a town with a population of  20,000.

The Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville recording artist begins his tour with superstar headliner Brad Paisley on the H2O Frozen Over Tour, starting January 20 at the Resch Center in Green Bay,Wisconsin Paisley’s tour will conclude on February 26 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

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…

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…
