Sara Evans Powers Her Way to a #1 Country Album with Stronger!

First Smash Single, “A Little Bit Stronger,” Is Climbing Toward the Country Radio
Top 10 as It Mines RIAA Gold!

Nashville, TN – After more than five million albums sold, award-winning RCA Nashville songstress Sara Evans delivered her first new studio album in more than five years last week, and the fans came out in force, blasting Evans’Stronger straight to a #1 debut on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.  With first-week sales in excess of 55,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan, Stronger also soars onto the all-genre Billboard 200 album chart, landing at #6.

Fans anxious for new music from Evans have clearly responded in a big way, as already indicated by Stronger’s first hit single, the Luke Laird/Hillary Lindsey/Hillary Scott-penned “A Little Bit Stronger.”  Currently #13 and climbing on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and #15 on the Country Aircheck airplay chart, “A Little Bit Stronger” has not only become a radio favorite, but also a huge seller, this week crossing the 500,000 digital download benchmark to earn RIAA Gold Digital Single certification.

The single has been hailed by People magazine as the “emotional centerpiece” of an album that People celebrates as a “potent country comeback,” while The Washington Post trumpets Evans’ “voluptuous alto and unwavering conviction,” and Country Weekly praises, her “sound is rich Southern comfort, delivered organically and with authenticity.”

Readers can be watching for a three-page feature on Evans in the new issue of People magazine, on sale later this week.

An ACM and CMA Award-winning recording artist, Sara’s career includes such #1 hits as “Born to Fly,” “No Place That Far,” “Suds in the Bucket,” and “A Real Fine Place to Start.”

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…

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…
