Kenny Chesney's Show was HUGE!!!!

Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation Tops Billboard’s Boxscore With Tour Wrapped, the Numbers Add Up To A Very Big Summer New York, NY/Boston, MA: While Kenny Chesney takes a little time before starting the follow-up to his 7th Billboard all-genre Top 200 Albums debut Life On A Rock, his 2013 No Shoes Nation Tour continues making news. Having topped the Boxscores for the first three weeks of August, his August 23-24 shows at Foxboro, MA’s Gillette stadium turned out to be the highest grossing shows in the world – besting Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, EarlWolf featuring Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt at Paris’ Stade de France August 22. “It’s hard to think in those terms,” Chesney says. “You know, I can only talk about the passion of my fans... and the way they come out there every year, and they sing so loud, they cheer so hard and they inspire me and the guys in ways they don’t even know! But the idea our 10th and 11th shows at Gillette Stadium were the biggest shows in the world? Well, that’s a tribute to the No Shoes Nation as much as anything.” Gillette Stadium was where the No Shoes Nation was christened in 2012. To mark the event, the Kraft family, who own Patriots, have hung a banner that replicates the Super Bowl flags, from one of the top sections near the end zone that can be seen from the stage. “Over the years, people have done some incredible things for me... Working out with the different teams, amazing gifts, donations to my charities, but I’ve never had anyone do anything like the Super Bowl banner marking the birthplace of the No Shoes Nation. And Robert Kraft tells me it’s not coming down, either.” The No Shoes Nation has been out in full force this year. With only 42 shows on the books, albeit 19 stadiums, the NSN Tour hit its million ticket mark in May – less than two months after kicking off at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium – and has played to over 1.25 million fans this summer alone. To that end, Chesney topped Billboard’s cumulative Box Score for the first three weeks of August with three stadium and three amphitheater shows in Atlanta, E. Rutherford, N.J., Detroit and Charlotte, NC, Toronto and Bangor, Maine and again Sept. 6th for his final three shows of the tour in Canandaigua, N.Y. and Boston. “You don’t think about the numbers, you think about the faces... the smiles... the cheers... I think about all the kids I’ve given a guitar and a football helmet to every night...,” Chesney says. “To me, that’s what these summers, these tours are all about: the fans, and how they mark our life out here.” The way faces and places mark your life has been a touchstone of Chesney’s music. So much so that a special live version of “When I See This Bar,” sung with Eric Church on the final night in Boston, has been sent to country radio. “If there’s anyone who understands what this song is about, it’s Eric! He’s spent his share of time in bars, and he knows the way those people, those friends, those moments make all of us who we are, and it was a pleasure to sing a song that special to me with an artist I respect as much as I do Eric. “It was a great summer having Kacey Musgraves, the Eli Young guys and Eric out there with us. To see people so passionate about music, well, that’s what it’s all about.”

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.

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…
