Dolly Remains Amazing!!!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 20, 2015) — Dolly Parton proved, yet again, why she continues to break records around the world as she sold out the Ryman Auditorium in record time. The sellout ranks among the fastest in Ryman Auditorium history.

Dolly will take the stage at the Ryman for the special concert event, “Dolly Parton: Pure and Simple,” July 31. The sold-out event marks the first full show Dolly has headlined in Nashville in 12 years. The benefit concert is the Dustin Wells Foundation Gift of Music concert, which supports the W. O. Smith School of Music. Dolly was honored by the invitation to support the charity, which is based in Nashville.

“I think back to all the people who encouraged me and helped me on my way up, and if I can help some young person make music, then I absolutely want to do that,” says Dolly Parton. “Music is important to me and my family, and I’m grateful that so many people wanted to come see the show that it sold out so quickly.”

Since its inception in 2008, the Gift of Music has enjoyed the support of some of music’s greatest artists, including Ronnie Dunn, Kellie Pickler, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Peter Cetera, Lee Greenwood, Peter Frampton, Gunnar Nelson, and many more generous, talented artists. Each artist donates their time and talent to support the efforts and causes of the Dustin’s foundation.

After Dustin Jack Wells lost his life in a car accident in 2005, his family and friends found a way to keep his memory alive and help others in the process. A fund was set up with all monetary donations used to reach out to others in memory of Dustin. Donating to the W.O. Smith School of Music is just one way the foundations enriches young lives.


The iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress, and philanthropist is scheduled to perform four SOLD OUT shows at Dollywood on August 8th and 9th to benefit her Imagination Library, a youth literacy initiative she created. She most recently wrapped up her “2014 Blue Smoke World Tour,” where the 100 million album selling singer performed in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Norway, and Switzerland.

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…
