JUSTIN MOORE’S TOUR BUS CATCHES FIRE EN ROUTE TO
WYCD’S “TEN MAN JAM”
NEW SINGLE, “IF HEAVEN WASN’T SO FAR AWAY,” TOP 40 BEFORE OFFICIAL ADD DATE

Nashville, TN – Lighting has officially struck twice for chart topper Justin Moore in Detroit. The last time the Country star headlined a show at the Royal Oaks Theatre (March 2010), his prized Gibson J-45 guitar was stolen by an enthusiastic fan.  Yesterday, as Moore traveled to Royal Oaks, MI, his tour bus caught fire.
Around 4 a.m. yesterday the engine became engulfed in flames while Moore, his band and crew, as well as Valory’s VP of Field Promotion George Briner slept.  Moore and his team were en route to perform at WYCD’s Ten Man Jam last night –at the Royal Oaks Theatre.
The fire started from one of the batteries connecting to the bus’ generator. The smoke alarm sounded as the bus started to fill with smoke. Everyone evacuated the bus while Moore’s bus driver extinguished the fire and assessed the situation. In all, the fire lasted approximately 10 minutes.
“Well...we really love coming to the Detroit area. I just hope in the future it gets a little more simple, as far as our trips go!” laughs Moore.  “In all seriousness, we're thankful that we're all safe, and feel blessed.  It could've been a lot worse than it was.”
After a half hour of standing outside in the freezing cold everyone was allowed to re-enter the bus. Fortunately, there was no damage to the engine and they were able to continue driving the bus to their hotel.  No one was harmed and the bus only sustained minor smoke damage. 
A replacement tour bus was sent to the Detroit area so that Justin can continue on his club tour this week:
Thursday, Feb. 17th --  The Machine Shop -- Flint, MI
Friday, Feb. 18th  -- Screamin’ Willies --  Columbus, OH
Saturday, Feb. 19th --  Madison Theater – Covington, KY
Speaking of scorching hot, Moore’s new single, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” is already a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart – six days before it officially goes for adds.  The single, which showcases a softer side of the Country rebel, is also receiving early national critical attention, including being highlighted in today’s The Miami Herald.

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.
