"IF HEAVEN WASN'T SO FAR AWAY" IS MOORE’S FASTEST RISING SINGLE TO DATE
Nashville, TN—(July 12, 2011)_- From retail to radio, Valory Music Co. recording artist Justin Moore continues to reign in Country music.  Just two weeks after his sophomore album, Outlaws Like Me, entered the chart in the #1 position, the album's lead-off single takes the #1 spot on the Billboard & Country Aircheck/USA Today Country Singles Charts.
 “The response to the song from fans has been overwhelming and having another No. 1 hit is the greatest feeling in the world!” exclaimed Moore upon hearing about his success at radio. “I love making music and the recent reactions my fans have had toward the single and the album allows me to keep on doing what I love.”
Scott Borchetta, President/CEO of the Big Machine Label Group adds, "Justin's ever growing fan base has stood up to be counted!  His fantastic first week album debut and the #1 airplay for Heaven, along with bang up business on the road with Rascal Flatts, has shown that Justin's ascending star is something that must be reckoned with.  I'm sure that industry acknowledgement is not far away." 
 “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” has sold over 300,000 digital single sales to date while Outlaws Like Me has had  over 100,000 in album sales in just two weeks.  The album made its debut as the No. 1 Best Selling Country Album according to Billboard’s Soundscan chart.
 Moore is currently on tour with the highly acclaimed “Flatts Fest” summer tour with headliner Rascall Flatts and will hit the road with Miranda Lambert later this fall.
 About Justin Moore: Justin Moore’s star has grown significantly since he was named Billboards’ “Top New Country Artist of 2009.” This Southern Country stylist has sold over 1.2 million digital downloads to date and his sophomore album OUTLAWS LIKE ME hit the #1 spot the week it was released. OUTLAWS LIKE ME includes the #1 hit and fastest rising single of Moore’s career, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” His debut album scored three consecutive smash singles (the #1 “Small Town USA” as well as the hits “Backwoods” and “How I Got To Be This Way”).  Additionally, his debut was recognized by the New York Times as one of the best albums of 2009.

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.

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…
