(Nashville, Tennessee...) - March 15, 2011 - Organizers of the Thursday Night Fishing Club Music Series at The Farm House Restaurant at Fontanel are pleased to announce Country Music Hall of Fame Member and founding member of the supergroup Alabama, Jeff Cook as the special guest appearing this Thursday, March 17, 2011. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., and music kicks off at 6:00 p.m. In addition to a delicious fish special and all of the other tasty items on the Farm House Restaurant menu, the evening will feature free drawings for fishing rods, reels, baits, tackle and passes to tour the Fontanel Mansion.

In addition to his rich vocals, Jeff Cook, "Mr. Musician," played lead guitar and fiddle for Alabama and helped propel the group to 21 gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums, 42 number one singles, two Grammy Awards, 23 American Music Awards, three CMA Entertainer of the Year Awards, ACM's Artist of the Decade, RIAA's Group of the Century, and more than 78 million records sold.

After retiring from the road in 2004, Alabama left millions of their fans wanting more of the down-home country music they had been enjoying for almost three decades. Five years later, Jeff cranked up his Allstar Goodtime Band, to bring their audiences a Smokin', House-Rockin' Goodtime Show. He and the band have released several CD's and they have something for most genres and includes the familiar "lick" of Jeff's well-known guitar and fiddle. 

Each dinner patron at the restaurant will receive a raffle ticket at the door from the hostess. The correlating ticket will go into a fish bowl, and winners will be drawn throughout the evening from stage for chances to win passes to tour the Fontanel Mansion and a variety of prizes courtesy of Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, Costa Del Mar Sunglasses, Shimano, American Rodsmiths, Owner Hooks, Plano Molding, P-Line fishing line, Aftco Bluewater Sportswear and new sponsors Wolverine Boots, CampChef, and High Mountain Seasonings.

Thursday Night Fishing Club founder Gary Shiebler along with bassist Jimmy Johnson will bring a seasoned ensemble to the Farm House Restaurant that includes musicians who play for Vince Gill, Patty Loveless and the Grand Ole Opry. The music series will peak in June with the 4th annual Porter Wagoner Memorial Artist/Angler Fishing Tournament.

The Farm House Restaurant at Fontanel opened in June of last year and has become a staple for local residents as well as visitors to the Nashville area. Virtually every item on the farm-to-fork menu features some ingredient from a local Middle Tennessee farm. Interested in eggs and Chardonnay? Breakfast is served all day, and patrons may bring their own wine, with no corkage fee. The full menu can be viewed here. In a rave review, the Nashville Scene wrote, "Nothing about this country cooking is copied or clichĂ©. It's simply true, it resonates, and it just makes sense."

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 fiancĂ© 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…
