MULTI-PLATINUM MCA RECORDING ARTIST JOSH TURNER ANNOUNCES
THE BIRTH OF HIS THIRD SON

Nashville, TN - Christmas came early this year for MCA Nashville artist Josh Turner and his wife, Jennifer, who welcomed their third son, Crawford Marion Turner, on Monday, December 13. He was born at 8:52 p.m. at a Nashville hospital. He weighed 6 pounds, 15 ounces and was 19 inches long. Both baby and mother are doing well.

"Jennifer and I are overjoyed at Marion's arrival,” Turner says. “He's a strong, handsome little boy with a resilient spirit. Thanks to all of our family, friends and fans for their thoughts and prayers."
Josh and Jennifer married in 2003 and have two other sons, Hampton, 4, and Colby, 17 months.

December has become a month of celebration for Turner. On December 6, he won Single of the Year at the American Country Awards in Las Vegas for “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” his four-week No. 1 single that was named the Most Played Song of 2010 by Mediabase.

Forty percent of the Top 5 country songs of the year were recorded by Turner, according to Billboard. “Why Don’t We Just Dance” was ranked at No.3 on Billboard’s year-end Hot Country Songs list, followed immediately by “All Over Me” at No. 4. He is the No. 5 Top Male Country Artist in the publication’s “The Year in Music 2010” issue that is on stands now.  In addition, Country Aircheckranked him as No. 4 on its list of Country Radio’s Top Male Performers in 2010.
 
Back-to-back No. 1 singles with “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “All Over Me” made Turner one of only seven country artists to have two No. 1 hits this year. He joins a list that includes Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Zac Brown Band, Billy Currington and Easton Corbin.

In February 2010, Turner’s fourth studio album, Haywire, debuted at #5 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. His current single is “I Wouldn’t Be a Man.”

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 fiancĂ© 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…
