(Nashville, Tennessee...) -- Xtreme Muzik The Tour, featuring co-headliners Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson has been a hit with audiences from coast to coast, and Big Kenny, John Rich and Gretchen Wilson will donate 100% of their proceeds from their September 2, 2011 date at The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel to Operation FINALLY HOME, a 501(c)3 organization that honors wounded and disabled veterans and widows of fallen soldiers with new homes.

"This is a wonderful organization I've worked with for years. They have a very simple but very important cause," said Big Kenny, who first approached his touring partners about the idea. "Building a home is noble, but constructing a home tailored to the needs of a specific injury or disability is one of the things Operation FINALLY HOME really understands and has done well time and again.  It's an honor for us all to have them working with us here in Music City. I'm willing to jump out of a perfectly good plane to raise awareness of the great needs of so many of our returning soldiers!"

Daniel Vargas, a retired U.S. Air Force Technical Sergeant runs Operation FINALLY HOME out of New Braunfels, Texas. Born out of the Bay Area Builders Association Support Our Troops effort, the program provides custom-made homes to wounded and disabled veterans as well as to widows of the fallen in an effort to get their lives back on track.

"For many of our soldiers the real battle begins once they've left the hospital and returned home," said Vargas. "We are committed to helping make sure that these men and women will have the security of a roof over their heads. This mission is possible only through gifts from donors and sponsors. We are grateful and proud to have country music stars Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson and Cowboy Troy support our efforts."

Doors to Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel, located at 4225 Whites Creek Pike in Nashville, open at 6:00 p.m. Big Kenny, CMSgt Steph Page and Shaun Meadows, a double amputee Afghanistan combat veteran, along with Team Fastrax Professional Skydiving Team will kick off the evening by skydiving high above the venue and landing in the meadow at Fontanel. Music will start at 7:00 p.m. with newcomer Bradley Gaskin. Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson will take the stage at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.woodsamphitheater.com

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 fiancĂ© 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…
