“ARE YOU GONNA KISS ME OR NOT” SCORES 2 GRAMMY NOMS


Breakout Country Duo Perform on FOX’s American Country Awards (12/5) and
GAC’s Christmas in the Black Hills network special (12/12)



(NASHVILLE, TN) -- On the heels of an extraordinary breakout year, Stoney Creek Records’ duo Thompson Square can now add Grammy nominees to its list of accolades.

Last night, Thompson Square scored a Best Country Duo/ Group Performance Grammy nomination for the #1 single, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not.” The Platinum-selling smash is also nominated for a Best Country Song Grammy.

The husband/wife duo were spending a rare night off in Nashville for some much needed R&R after playing to over one million fans this year when they got the news.

“We both could not believe the news of our Grammy nominations,” said Keifer Thompson. “When our manager told us we really thought he was playing some sort of sick joke on us. We can't thank the Grammys enough for such a prestigious honor!

“If I'm asleep please don't wake me up.... cause this is a dang good dream!!” mused Shawna Thompson.

Thompson Square heads to Las Vegas this weekend for FOX’s 2nd Annual American Country Awards where they are the second-highest most nominated act with 7 nods. The duo will perform the nominated “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” on the live broadcast, airing Monday Dec. 5th at 8 pm ET/ 7 pm CT.

Thompson Square will also perform as part of Great American Country’s (GAC) Christmas in the Black Hills. Hosted by Big & Rich, the holiday concert special was shot at various locations around historic Deadwood, South Dakota. Christmas in the Black Hills premieres on GAC on Monday, Dec. 12 at 8 pm ET/ 7 pm CT.

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on Feb. 12, 2012, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT)

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 The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time.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…
