The Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award was presented for the first time last year to its namesake. The Lifetime Achievement Award was created and meant to be presented to an iconic artist who has attained the highest degree of recognition in Country Music. The Award recognizes an artist who has achieved both national and international prominence and stature through concert performances, humanitarian efforts, philanthropy, record sales, and public representation at the highest level. Lady Antebellum and The Band Perry have been added to the list of artists performing during the ceremony, and previously announced performers Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban will perform together on the CMA Awards for the first time. Nettles is a six-time CMA Awards winner, five of which were for Vocal Duo of the Year with Sugarland, and one as songwriter for Song of the Year, “Stay.” Sugarland is nominated again for Vocal Duo of the Year. Rascal Flatts has earned seven CMA Awards and 16 career nominations over. The trio was named Vocal Group of the Year six consecutive times, and also received the Horizon Award (now New Artist of the Year) in 2002. Rucker is a former CMA New Artist of the Year with four career CMA Awards nominations. He is nominated this year for Single of the Year for “Wagon Wheel,” the No. 1 single from his latest album, True Believers. The hit is also nominated for Song of the Year for songwriters Bob Dylan and Ketch Secor. Lady Antebellum are seven-time CMA Awards winners with 14 career nominations.

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 The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time.

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…

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…
