CARL PERKINS  INFLUENCE STILL SWEETNIN' THE AIR WAVES
 
NASHVILLE- The personal touch of Carl Perkins, legendary musician and writer, is alive and well today, thanks to some great advice and guitar demonstrations  he gave Luckey, one half of the KMG duo, Curtis and Luckey. The duo's self penned single, "Eye Candy" is  making waves on the airwaves and  in clubs around the nation. Duo partner and co-writer, Luckey Moore, credits Hall of Famer  Perksin's for any music success he achieves.
 
Carl Perkins was a family friend of Luckey's. Growing up, Luckey spent time literally sitting at the feet of Perkins as he taught  him some guitar licks, songwriting techniques and overall advice about music. 
 
"Carl told me that a good song had to make you feel something, like move your feet, laugh, cry or give you hope.  He said when you write a song, you're using words to say something that somebody else, somewhere couldn't find the words to say; and you're using music to carry those words to them," Luckey explained.

One of Luckey's most prized possessions is a guitar selected for him by the award winning musician. "I loved watching Carl play. He told  me little things about  playing like having a soft touch on the guitar like you're stroking it, and how the guitar becomes an extension of you when it's being played.  He was right, it has become a part of me", Luckey continued.
 
"I remember one day, he listened a long time to me playing, and he was looking so serious I thought he didn't like it.  Then, he looked me in the eyes, smiled really big, and told me I had that soft touch, and one day I could be an "old guitar picker" like him. I can't think of any thing greater than being half the man he was inside."
 
From the time they hit the stage till the final note, Curtis and  Luckey take their audience on a unique musical journey that promises to lift your spirits. The two combine their gifts of songwriting and singing into a high energy performance gaining fans everywhere they play.

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…

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…
