JUSTIN MOORE’S OUTLAWS LIKE ME debuts at #1 ON THE SALES CHART
COUNTRY STAR’S NEW ALBUM IS THE THIRD BEST DEBUT OF THE YEAR

Nashville, TN-- OUTLAWS LIKE ME, the new album from Valory Music Co. artist  Justin Moore, debuts as the #1 BEST SELLING Country album according to Billboard’s Scoundscan chart. The new set also enters Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart at #5. The 3rd highest Country debut this year, beating first week numbers from many superstar artists, including recent releases from Ronnie Dunn and Sara Evans.

Outpaced this year by only Brad Paisley’s THIS IS COUNTRY MUSIC and Alison Krauss and Union Station’s PAPER AIRPLANE, this impressive debut further underscores Justin Moore’s status as one of the hottest artists in country music.

Moore kicked off the street week for his sophomore album  in New York City, making appearances on “Fox News”, “ABC News” and “Better TV.” He also interviewed with radio and television stations around the country via satellite from a boat in the lake in Central Park. 

Critics have lauded this Arkansas native’s backwoods charm, prompting The Washington Post to describe his music as “consistently brawny and upbeat, reminiscent at times of Hank Williams Jr.” and The New York Times hails him as a “a strong and versatile singer,” as well as a songwriter whose lyrical “fantasies of regional pride and class revenge are the meat and potatoes of modern country music”.

The album’s lead single If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away is also headed for the #1 spot.  It is the fastest rising single of his career sitting at #4 this week and has sold nearly 300,000 copies to date.

About Justin Moore: Justin Moore’s star has grown significantly since he was named Billboard’s “Top New Country Artist of 2009.”  This Southern Country stylist has sold over 1.2 million digital downloads to date and has scored three consecutive smash hits from his debut album (the #1 “Small Town USA”; Top 5 “Backwoods”; and Top 20 “How I Got To Be This Way”).  His self-titled album, which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200, was recognized as one of the best albums of 2009 by The New York Times and garnered him a CMT Music Award nomination.

About the Valory Music Co.: The Valory Music Co., the second of three labels established under the Big Machine Label Group umbrella, opened in November 2007.  The label celebrated its first #1 album with Jewel’s PERFECTLY CLEAR only 7 months after launching and then celebrated its first #1 single just 3 months later when Jimmy Wayne’s, “Do You Believe Me Now,” spent 3 weeks atop the Country singles charts.  In November 2008 the label signed multimedia superstar Reba McEntire who saw her first Valory Music Co. album release KEEP ON LOVING YOU debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and spend two consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Since then Reba has enjoyed the two biggest chart hits of her illustrious 30+ year career when, “Consider Me Gone,” spent a historic 4 weeks at #1 and, “Turn on the Radio,” followed, allowing Reba to both begin and end 2010 at #1.  Southern stylist Justin Moore’s poignant anthem, “Small Town USA,” reached #1 in October of 2009 and he has quickly become a Country Radio airplay staple as well as a touring force to be reckoned with.  New to the label is southern Country-Rock sensation Brantley Gilbert who has already topped the Country Singles Charts by writing, “My Kinda Party,” for Jason Aldean.  Brantley Gilbert has a new album due later this year.  The Valory Music Co. possesses an exclusive, in-house promotion branding team while utilizing existing Big Machine Records backroom service and is distributed by UMGD.

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…
