GRETCHEN WILSON TO PERFORM ON "TONIGHT SHOW" & "THE TALK"
Participating in CMA Songwriters Series at Club Nokia in LA
(Nashville, Tennessee...) -- February 7, 2011 -- After Gretchen Wilson attends Sunday night's Grammy Awards, where she's a double-nominee for "Best Country Female Vocal Performance" and "Best Country Song," she will stay in Los Angeles to make a couple of high-profile television appearances. On Monday, February 14, she will make her debut appearance on the popular new CBS Television show "The Talk," and the following day she will return to the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno." That same evening, she will join fellow songwriters Chris Young, Brett James, Victoria Shaw and host Bob DiPiero at Club Nokia for the CMA Songwriters Series. She will perform her Grammy-nominated single "I'd Love To Be Your Last" on both "The Talk" and the "Tonight Show" exactly as it was originally recorded -- with just acoustic guitar and cello. "This is such a beautiful love song, just so beautifully written by Rivers Rutherford and Sam and Annie Tate," said Gretchen. "It's the kind of song that almost makes you cry every time you hear it. It's the last track on the (I Got Your Country Right Here) record and I'm really glad we put it on there." The original recording and/or the radio remix have both been a Top 5 Download on MPE. The song can be heardhere. Following Grammy week, Gretchen will be back on the road for dates in Mahnomen, MN and Dubuque, IA before heading home for a Grand Ole Opry appearance and the annualMusic At The Millbenefit concert for McClain Christian Academy in Lebanon, TN.
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…
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…
