CHARLEY PRIDE GIVES FANS CHOICES ON MARCH 8

Pride Keeps Tour Trail Hot; Joins Texas Rangers for Spring Workouts

Nashville, Tenn (February 16, 2011) –Without doubt, Charley Pride is one of the most respected and successful personas in all of country music.  After all, it was the three-time Grammy winner who made music history when his 1969 classic “All I Have To Offer You Is Me,” bolted to the top of the US Country chart, making him the first African American in country music to land a No. 1 hit. To date, the multi-platinum selling Pride holds 36 No. 1 hits and has sold more than 70 million records (albums and singles combined).


On March 8, 2011, Pride releases Choices (Music City Records), his first all-new album in five years. 

Choices are exactly what fans will get on the diverse album, which features 13 new recordings.  Album cuts include songs penned by some of Pride’s favorite writers including Ted Harris (“Crystal Chandeliers”), Ben Peters (“Kiss An Angel Good Morning”), Charlie Monk, Eddy Raven and Richie McDonald, formerly of Lonestar.

“I’ve been in the studio a lot over the last few years.  So, I had to make some hard choices when selecting which of the new recordings to include on the album,” notes Pride.  “I’m very happy with the final result and I’m thrilled to finally be able to share some of the new music with my fans.”

On the road, the Country Music Hall of Famer shows no signs of slowing down as he kicks off an 11-city tour of Canada starting April 27 in Regina, Saskatchewan.  Pride’s full tour schedule can be viewed by clicking HERE.

In addition to maintaining a healthy tour schedule, Pride, who recently acquired part ownership of Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers, is currently in Surprise, AZ, keeping himself and the team both in shape and entertained.  Ownership stake aside, it is a long-standing tradition for Pride, a former Negro American League All-Star player, to workout with the Rangers during spring training.

From humble beginnings as a sharecropper’s son, to becoming one of country music’s greatest pioneers, the “Pride of Country Music” is the first and only African American Grand Ole Opry member in its over 70 year history.  Pride’s accolades are endless with multiple Grammy wins, CMA Entertainer of the Year and Top Male Vocalist awards, a Country Music Hall of Fame induction and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

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…
