SINGER / SONGWRITER IRA DEAN SIGNS WITH
AVERAGE JOE’S ENTERTAINMENT


Self-titled Album Set To Be Released In Late 2011

Ira DeanNASHVILLE, TN -- (July 25, 2011) – Average Joe’s Entertainment is delighted to announce the addition of Ira Dean, former member of country trio Trick Pony, to its’ roster. “Ira is a true triple threat:  he's a hit songwriter, a great singer and a true entertainer!  We are thrilled to welcome him to Average Joe’s," said Tom Baldrica, President of Average Joe’s Entertainment.

Chart-topping hits written by Dean such as “Pour Me,” and the Grammy nominated “Just What I Do,” established him, not only as Trick Pony’s “Wildman” with headlights in his chrome bass, but as a brand new singer/songwriting force and studio musician in country music. The trio won the American Music Awards’ “Top New Artist” and the Country Music Association’s “Artist of the Year” award and released three studio albums producing four top twenty singles on Billboard Hot Country. Their second CD, On A Mission, which Ira co-wrote seven cuts, brought in an additional five Academy of Country Music nominations including, “Album of the Year” and “Vocal Group of the Year.”

In 2008, Dean departed Trick Pony, and has since been busy writing songs for other artists including Joe Nichols, Chris Young, ex-band mate Heidi Newfield, Jake Owen, Gary Allan, and Montgomery Gentry, including their big hit “One In Every Crowd.”  He also has the writing credits on the title track for Trace Adkins’ album due out August 2, Proud To Be Here.

Now Dean is focusing on his solo career and is thrilled to be joining the Average Joe’s family, “I’m very excited to be working with Tom Baldrica and Average Joe’s and to be label mates with my good friends Colt Fort and Montgomery Gentry.” Dean’s self-titled solo debut CD is set to be released by Average Joe’s Entertainment in late 2011.  Ira Dean hints that the music on his solo debut is “a mixture of alcohol and testosterone-driven songs. My buddy Bobby Pinson has tagged it as ‘testostahol’.”  Recently, radio picked up on the album cut “Beer or Gasoline” which was written by Dean and previously recorded by Chris Young. However, the first official single, “Something About A Sunday”, will be going for adds in September. Please visit www.iradean.com for further information.

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…

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…
