JUSTIN MOORE’S NEW SINGLE, “IF HEAVEN WASN’T SO FAR AWAY,”DEBUTS TOP 40
ON BOTH BILLBOARD & MEDIABASE/ COUNTRY AIRCHECK CHARTS

Nashville, TN – “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” the lead single from Country star Justin Moore’s sophomore album, soared into the Top 40 on both the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and the USA Today/ Country Aircheck chart, powered by Mediabase this week, debuting at #37and #40 respectively. 

Yesterday’s debut exemplifies how significantly Moore’s star status has grown since he was named Billboard’s “Top New Country Artist of 2009.”  Moore’s new single was the second most-added song at Country radio this week, second only to superstar Kenny Chesney.  Moore has graduated from main stage opening act on Brad Paisley’s “American Saturday Night” and “H20” tours to main stage supporting act on Miranda Lambert’s current “The Revolution Continues” tour.  The southern country stylist has sold over 1.2 million digital downloads and scored three consecutive smash hits from his debut album (the #1 “Small Town USA”; Top 5 “Backwoods”; and Top 20 “How I Got To Be This Way”).

“If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” shows a softer side of one of Country music’s hottest rebel rockers.  Upon first listen, the single struck an emotional chord with Moore, who recently found his own life reflecting the song’s storyline.

"If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away" is one of those songs you hear one time, and know immediately that it’s special,” says Moore. “Everybody, unfortunately, can relate to the lyrics in this song.  It's a part of life.  You have to go through losing loved ones. Personally, I went through it a year ago losing my grandpa and aunt in the same week,”

Continues Moore, “The great thing about this song is that it will make you laugh and cry, and evoke every other emotion you can think of.  To me, that's what Country music is all about. That's why I make it, love it, and live it.  I'm thrilled that everyone is just as excited about it as I am. I want to say a HUGE thank you to Country radio for playing it early for us. I can't wait to play this song all across the country this year.”

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.

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…
