TAYLOR SWIFT CELEBRATES 2ND CONSECUTIVE ACM ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR AWARD

LAS VEGAS, NV – April 2, 2012 – 6-time GRAMMY winner Taylor Swift took home top honors at last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards, winning the Entertainer of the Year trophy for the second consecutive year. This marks Taylor’s fourth Entertainer of the Year win, as she took home the top trophy from the ACM last year, in addition to winning Entertainer of the Year at last fall’s Country Music Association Awards, an honor she also won in 2009.

Also this weekend, Taylor was honored on Saturday night at the 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards, receiving the prestigious Big Help Award for her extensive philanthropic endeavors. First Lady Michelle Obama presented the award to Taylor, saying, "Taylor Swift may be in the news most often for her award-winning songs and multi-platinum records, but every step of the way she has always made it a point to give back….[She] has shattered every expectation of what a 22 year-old can accomplish.”

Just last week, Taylor’s song “Ours” became the fifth consecutive #1 single from her 5x Platinum-plus Speak Now album, released in October of 2010 on Big Machine Records. Last month, she wrapped her blockbuster 13-month Speak Now World Tour, playing the tour’s 1111th and final show to a capacity crowd in Auckland, New Zealand. The tour played to more than 1.3 million fans in stadiums and arenas in 19 countries spanning four continents, earning raves from both fans and critics around the globe.

Taylor has two songs on the soundtrack album The Hunger Games – Songs From District 12 and Beyond, which debuted at #1 on both the iTunes and SoundScan albums charts in its first week of release. Of the 1,169,254 singles sold to date from the album, 1,003,917 are Taylor’s. The Hunger Games is currently the #1 book, movie, and album in America.

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…

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…
