DAILEY & VINCENT MAKE EUROPEAN TOUR DEBUT,
WOWING SOLD-OUT CROWDS WITH BLUEGRASS HARMONIES

GRAMMY-nominated Duo Returns Home from Irish / Swiss Tour

Nashville, Tenn. (September 13, 2011) – Dailey & Vincent, Bluegrass music’s reigning IBMA Entertainer of the Year, kept Irish and Swiss toes tappin’ last week as the duo toured Europe.

Dailey & Vincent recently made their way ‘across the pond’ for a four-concert tour of Ireland and Switzerland.  The duo’s debut in Europe proved to be a success, with sold-out box offices on all four concert dates.

Dailey & Vincent kicked off their tour in Omagh, Ireland, selling-out two performances as the band headlined the 20th Annual Appalachian and Bluegrass Music Festival and in turn received several standing ovations for their trademark harmonies.

“Our European fans are so loyal and dedicated,” says Darrin Vincent.  “We’re having so much fun and we’ve made tons of new friends.  I hope we get the opportunity to come back and tour these countries again and again."

Last weekend, along with Country stars Trace Adkins and Laura Bell Bundy, Dailey & Vincent headlined two sold-out shows in Gstaad, Switzerland at the Gstaad Festival.
  
On performing and traveling abroad, Jamie Dailey notes, “We had a great time performing but we also had time to do a little sightseeing.  We toured St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin and while inside, they gave us permission to sing a hymn from 'Amazing Grace.'  The acoustics inside that church are absolutely incredible.”

In addition to their live concert dates Dailey & Vincent made a special stop in the Swiss capitol of Bern, where they performed a private 9/11 tribute concert-dinner for United States Swiss Ambassador Donald Beyer and several heads of state.  The evening was themed, A Bluegrass Celebration: The American Spirit Renewed.  Fried chicken was served as the concert-dinner's main delicacy.

The duo returned home this past Sunday to resume their regular United States tour schedule.

Three-time IBMA Entertainer of the Year Dailey & Vincent were recently announced among the performers for the 2011 IBMA Awards show ceremony scheduled for Thursday, September 29 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.  The duo is in the running for several major awards including: Entertainer of the YearVocal Group of the Year andMale Vocalist of the Year (Jamie Dailey).  The awards show will air live at 7:30 PM CDT on SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction.

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…
