Nashville – (June 20, 2011)  - Carrie Underwood’s trip to Australia to promote the June 10th release ofPLAY ON: DELUXE EDITION and the Australian film release of Soul Surfer, her big screen debut, concluded this past weekend.  During her nearly 2-week visit down under, she posed for magazines, interviewed with countless television programs, radio stations, print publications, and online outlets, as well as delivered standout performances on major Australian television shows including Dancing With the Stars and Sunrise.
Underwood’s travel from her first destination city of Melbourne to Sydney delivered her almost straight to theSunrise set via an unplanned 11-hour bus ride instead of flying due to the ash-cloud from the Chilean volcano.
“I didn't want to take the chance to miss performing for my fans in Sydney, so we decided to get a bus and make the drive!” said Underwood. “It also gave me an opportunity to see more of the country than I'd otherwise get to see which was very exciting!"
Also while in Sydney, Underwood received a roaring reception while performing for an exclusive VIP audience of media and music industry professionals at the renowned Museum of Contemporary Art.
After Melbourne and Sydney, Underwood traveled to Brisbane for additional appearances, including a halftime performance at the Broncos vs. Dragons National Rugby League match, as well as a performance and extended fan autograph signing in downtown Brisbane.
Though she had a very intense work schedule on the trip, Underwood also made time to take in some of the local sights with her band and crew, including the famous Melbourne Zoo and a private tour of the prestigious Sydney Opera House.

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.

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 The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time.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

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…
