SAM HUNT EARNS PLATINUM STATUS AND FIRST NO. 1 WITH LEAD SINGLE “LEAVE THE NIGHT ON”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Monday, November 3, 2014) - Sam Hunt’s lead single “Leave the Night On,” off his major label debut album MONTEVALLO, lands at No. 1 on both the Billboard and MediaBase charts this week making it Hunt’s first chart-topping single as an artist. The song also becomes Hunt’s first RIAA-certified Platinum title, registering more than 1 Million in sales. Written by Hunt, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Leave the Night On” was the highest debuting new artist single in the history of Country Aircheck and quickly made its way to the peak position. “Leave the Night On” is Hunt’s third No. 1 as a songwriter following “Come Over” recorded by Kenny Chesney and “We Are Tonight” recorded by Billy Currington. Additional writer credits include Keith Urban’s recent Top 10 “Cop Car.” On his latest No. 1, Hunt shares, “I'm really excited that folks have connected to ‘Leave the Night On’ the way they have. This past year has been a wild ride and I can’t wait to see what the future has to hold.” The No. 1 single leads the way for Hunt’s recent Oct. 27 album release, MONTEVALLO, on MCA Records Nashville. In support of last week’s release, Hunt performed on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” "Live with Kelly & Michael,” as well as an exclusive in-studio performance for iHeart Radio. Identified as the “next big artist,” Hunt is the current talent focus of VEVO’s LIFT program and he was recently named winner of Spotify’s Emerge program, a first for a country artist. Fans can find Hunt out on the road with Kip Moore and Charlie Worsham on the CMT ON TOUR: UP IN SMOKE Tour.

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…

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…
