Carrie Underwood # 22

Nashville, TN, November 23, 2015 -- Superstar Carrie Underwood has multiple reasons for celebration today! On the heels of her Favorite Female Artist - Country win last evening on the 2015 American Music Awards, Underwood achieves her 22nd #1 hit with "Smoke Break," the lead single from her new album, Storyteller. The single has also reached #1 on the country charts in Canada and Australia.



Described by The Guardian as “refreshingly smart and bold,” "Smoke Break," was produced by Jay Joyce and written by Carrie Underwood, Hillary Lindsey, and Chris DeStefano, and has become an anthem for those who need an escape every now and then from the challenges of daily life. When Storyteller debuted at #1, the 19 Recordings/Arista Nashville entertainer made history being the first artist to have all six of her first albums debut at the top of the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Of Underwood's 22 #1 hits, "Smoke Break" is her 12th co-write. 

With last night's win for Favorite Female Artist - Country, Carrie Underwood increases her total AMA award wins to nine. Her Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, and Blown Away albums all have been honored with American Music Awards for Favorite Country Album. 

With a stunning performance last night, Underwood treated millions of viewers to the television debut of her new single "Heartbeat" on the AMAs. Officially impacting country radio on November 30, she co-penned the romantic song with Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley; Crowell also produced the track.

Underwood recently announced the launch of her highly anticipated Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round, which will hit arenas across North America this January, her first tour “in the round.” For more information on the tour visit www.carrieunderwood.fm.

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 The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time.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