Eric Church...Wowed!

ERIC CHURCH REACTS TO FIVE CMA AWARD NOMINATIONS Church Leads CMA Award Nominations with Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Song of the Year, and Music Video of the Year for “Springsteen” NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wednesday, September 5, 2012) – Platinum-selling country artist Eric Church was blissfully unaware that upon his return to Nashville earlier today, he would lead the pack of contenders with the most nominations for the 2012 CMA Awards. Following his first-ever CMA nomination for New Artist of the Year at last year’s awards show, Church received a total of five nominations this year including: Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (CHIEF), Single of The Year (“Springsteen”), Song of the Year (“Springsteen”), and Music Video of the Year (“Springsteen”). While swimming in the Gulf of Mexico on vacation this past week, Church lost his cell phone and had no way to be informed he'd even been nominated at all. However, when he returned to Nashville this morning his management whisked him away to their office, projected the press release from the CMA on an oversized screen in his manager John Peets’ office, and waited for his reaction. “I really don’t even know what to say!” Church said. “I’m still a little bit in shock… I’m truly speechless. I think it’s a testament to the fans that believed in the music... loved the music... and told people about the music because otherwise we don’t really have the track record to be the most nominated at this point in our career. I think that it’s truly because of the fans… they did something I think is going to be judged as pretty special.” In order to thank them for all of their support over the years, Church created a special video address that went out to Church Choir members exclusively today. On Sept. 13, Church will kick off the fall leg of The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour in Amherst, MA and will release his first-ever live album in 2013.

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…
