NASHVILLE –- July 13, 2011 --   Vince GillJohn OatesThe Long PlayersJohn Jorgenson,Mark SelbyJoe RobinsonBaillie & the Boys,   Sean Della Croce and others are coming together to lend their extraordinary talents to FOR PETE’S SAKE:  YOU’VE GOTTA HAVE HEART – A Benefit for Pete Huttlinger on Tuesday, July 26 at Mercy Lounge (1 Cannery Row) at 8 p.m.  Tickets are $20 and can be purchased via TicketWeb and at the door. 
 
All proceeds raised as a result of this amazing night of music – sure to include once-in-a-lifetime collaborations and jams – will help diffuse costs associated with Huttlinger’s surgeries and treatment.  The widely respected guitarist and Nashville studio artist is recovering from surgery and awaiting a heart transplant.
 
Huttlinger has a congenitally defective heart.  His heart has slowly deteriorated over his lifetime, and in March, he went into extreme heart failure.  Too sick to wait for a heart transplant, Huttlinger was life-flighted on April 29 to St. Luke’s Texas Heart Institute in Houston and underwent surgery (May 4) to have a heart pump installed.  This cutting edge device is a mechanical pump that is implanted in his heart and is powered by a battery pack which Huttlinger carries with him.  This undertaking is referred to as a “bridge to transplant.”  When Huttlinger recovers from this surgery, he will return to Nashville and await a heart transplant which will take place at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  Huttlinger suffered a massive stroke in November, but had recovered completely.

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 fiancé 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…
