NASHVILLE – (July 25, 2011)  –  Over 65,000 fans attended shows this weekend to see Rascal Flatts including 2 sold-out “Flatts Fest” dates in Cincinnati, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana.
 Prior to the “Flatts Fest” show in Indianapolis at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Saturday,  Rascal Flatts- Gary, Jay and Joe Don- stunned fans when they made an unannounced visit to the “Why Wait” wedding chapel and “Flatts Fest” Karaoke Challenge during a pre-show walk through the festival grounds.
The band surprised the wedding couple, Anthony Payne and Stephani Giveans, who renewed their vows at the “Why Wait” wedding chapel (sponsored by David’s Bridal), and stood by as witnesses to the ceremony.  The wedding was officiated by WFMS radio dj Jim Denny, along with Deb Honeycutt as bridesmaid and Kevin Freeman as the ring bearer, who are also a part of the station’s morning show.
Gary, Jay and Joe Don then jetted onto the stage of the “Flatts Fest” Karaoke Challenge while contestant Jessi Bennett was performing, who won the chance to perform through a pre-show contest hosted by local radio station WLHK.  After a short moment to pull herself together, she finished singing while the guys stood by to cheer her on.  Her performance was followed by the band doing a shortened karaoke version of their hit “Bless The Broken Road,” which began with a slightly revised singing performance by Jay, ever the comedian.
Rascal Flatts debuted their first album on Big Machine Records, NOTHING LIKE THIS, last November at #1 on the country album sales chart and became one of only four country acts to debut six consecutive studio albums at #1.  Since their musical debut in 2000, the band has sold 20 million albums and 25 million digital downloads and delivered 13 #1 singles to the top of the chart.  Rascal Flatts is the most awarded country group of the past decade with over 40 trophies from the American Country Awards, Academy of Country Music, American Music Awards, Country Music Association, People’s Choice Awards and more.  Since their touring career began, they have sold over 6 million concert tickets

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…
