Great Voices, Fun People and legends named Possum!
Jimmy Carter

Wait until you hear the new Tony Bennett Duets2 cd this week! Not sure any of this will get Country radio play but it could: Faith,Willie and Carrie all have songs.
On the Sunny Side of the Street with a Willie guitar solo is real nice big band days tune. Faith Hill’s voice is not heard nearly enough these days but she is so elegant with Mr Bennett on The Way You Look Tonight..whoaaaa.
Then the Carrie Underwood choice, It Had To Be You. We usually hear Carrie blowing out the roof with that powerful voice. In this song she has been throttled back and sounds like a classy nightclub singer in Chicago back in the Capone days.
Duets2 is going to be a big seller and will get a lot of Grammy nominations/wins!
All those voices on Duets and this week has been the week for Voices. At the Opry salute to George Jones some of Country Music’s sometimes below the radar singers. Joe Diffie tore up I Don’t Need No Rockin Chair in pure Jones voice. You will see that and Jamey Johnson, LeeAnn Womack, The Oaks and Alan Jackson October 4th on GAC.
Someone had a brilliant idea to put a Golden Ticket in ONE of the new Montgomery Gentry cds. The winner gets a new chopper. Contests generate publicity as me writing this shows. Whatever it takes in this crazy fragmented marketing world.
Taylor Swift in Music City this weekend. 2 sold out shows. The industry people will be there and let’s see if this gets her another Entertainer of the Year award at the CMAs.
In the coming week, The ACM Honors Monday at the Ryman. Reba gets her lifetime achievement award then on Wednesday The Capitol Records block party with Alan Jackson and most of the label hot shots.
And for your weekend reading….waiting until you spend hours reading all this. Go to that state web site……go to the State Fair Commission section. I guess they got tired of making copies for all the lawyers and just put all the potential paperwork on the net in PDF files. Lots of lawsuits are coming concerning that stage disaster.
You see the CAA deal memos the prices, the riders EVERYTHING. The emergency action plan which was good just not completely followed. Very interesting reading.

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…
