Nashville, Tennessee (March 10, 2011) – It’s a celebration of firsts for Sunny Sweeney, whose Republic Nashville debut single, “From A Table Away,” has escalated into the Top 10 on both Billboard and Mediabase Country Charts. This excitement comes just after the announcement that she will join her first major tour – Brad Paisley’s H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour – this spring.

“From A Table Away” garnered Sweeney the highest-charting debut single of a solo female Country artist in the last four years since Taylor Swift’s “Tim McGraw,” which peaked at #6 in January 2007.

Beginning May 28 Sweeney will hit the road with Brad Paisley on his H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour, which kicks off at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA and continues throughout the summer. During the run she will showcase songs on her current EP, which skyrocketed into the Top 5 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart just hours after it was released, as well as several new tunes. Sweeney co-wrote 7 of the 10 tracks from her forthcoming album, slated for release later this year.

Headline Country went behind-the-scenes with Sunny last month for a tour of the Grand Ole Opry, where she was invited to perform for the 23rd time since her debut in 2007. Catch this glimpse of Country music history and its future tonight, March 10, at 9:00pm EST/8:00pm CST on Great American Country (GAC).

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 The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time.

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…
