650 AM WSM LIVE BROADCAST TO FEATURE NEW MUSIC INDUSTRY TALENT




     Lebanon, Tenn. (January 28, 2016) – 650 AM WSM, the radio home of the Grand Ole Opry, and the Wilson County Convention and Visitors Bureau are pleased to announce the debut of WSM Live From The Capitol Theatre, a live performance show highlighting aspiring singers and songwriters.  The two-hour matinee program will broadcast live from 1-3 p.m. CT from the stage of Lebanon’s historic Capitol Theatre on February 27, March 26, and April 23, 2016, with future dates to be announced.

      WSM Live From The Capitol Theatre is not a talent competition, but rather a showcase designed to give much needed exposure to vocalists and bands looking for their break in the music industry.  A rich musical history has positioned Wilson County as an “incubator” for aspiring songwriters and musicians who are seeking performance and learning opportunities before heading to Music City. To be considered for the showcase, performers can visit WSMonline.com for EPK submission.

     “As a resident of Wilson County, I feel that it is important to support and promote the new music talent scene emerging here.  Bob Black, owner of The Capitol Theatre is providing the ideal setting for this ongoing event,” said Chris Kulick, WSM General Manager. “We live in a day and age where it is difficult for an artist to gain exposure, and WSM Live From The Capitol Theatre will showcase new talent from a beautifully restored venue on the very station that coined the moniker Music City.”

     The fast-growing community a short drive or train ride from Nashville is already the home of many country stars including Charlie Daniels, Tracy Lawrence, Darryl Worley, and Gretchen Wilson.  Legendary songwriter Curly Putman, whose Wilson County property was made famous in Paul McCartney’s song “Down On Junior’s Farm,” is one of the county’s most beloved residents.
Iconic producer Owen Bradley put Wilson County on the music industry radar with his famous recording studio “Bradley’s Barn,” which catered to country and rock royalty in a relaxed, rural setting.

     Tickets to WSM Live From The Capitol Theatre are $10.00 each and will be available onsite or at capitoltheatretn.com. The show will be broadcast live on 650 AM, WSMonline.com and on WSM’s free mobile app.

     650 AM WSM’s first official broadcast day was October 5, 1925. The station is the radio home of the Grand Ole Opry, which has been broadcast live over the airwaves since its inception. 650 AM WSM is owned by Ryman Hospitalities.

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…
