TAYLOR SWIFT CELEBRATES 5TH CONSECUTIVE #1 SINGLE FROM SPEAK NOW ALBUM

TAYLOR WRAPS 111-SHOW, 13-MONTH WORLD TOUR WITH SOLD-OUT SHOWS, RAVE REVIEWS AND STRONG SALES

NASHVILLE, TN – March 22, 2012 – 6-time GRAMMY winner Taylor Swift is at the top of the Billboard chart this week as her single “Ours” ascends to the #1 position on the Top Country Songs chart. “Ours” is the fifth single, and fifth consecutive #1 song, from her 5x Platinum-plus Speak Now album, released in October of 2010 on Big Machine Records. The album’s previous #1 songs were “Mine,” “Back To December,” “Mean,” and “Sparks Fly.”

On Sunday evening, Taylor performed the 111th and final show of her 13-month blockbuster Speak Now World Tour, playing to a capacity crowd for the third consecutive night in Auckland, New Zealand’s Vector Arena. The tour visited stadiums and arenas in 19 countries spanning four continents, with the New Zealand Herald writing of the final show, “When she came out the room exploded, and she opened super-strong. The set heats up and stays strong …one of the best things about the show is how inclusive it feels - like she would sing personally for everyone on the arena if she could….while as a production it dwarfs any other arena show I've seen. One thing abundantly clear to all concerned was that we're unlikely to witness a show like that again in a long, long time. Maybe ever.” Taylor holds the #1, #2, #5 and #8 positions on Australia’s Aria Top 20 Country Albums sales chart this week.

Taylor has two songs on the soundtrack album The Hunger Games – Songs From District 12 and Beyond, which is currently #1 on the iTunes Albums Chart. In addition, she voices the character of Audrey in Dr. Seuss’s The LORAX, which is this year’s top grossing movie to date, with a box office total in excess of $158 million.

Taylor is nominated for three 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Video of the Year. She is also up for Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Song at the 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards. She is featured on the April cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia, and was on the cover of Vogue in February. Taylor is the reigning Billboard Woman of the Year and the AMA Artist of the Year. She is both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association’s current Entertainer of the Year, and now has more than 11.8 million Twitter followers (@taylorswift13) and 29 million Facebook friends.

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.

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…
