Madd and Tae "Fly " to Lee Brice

NASHVILLE, TN (February 5, 2016) – Maddie & Tae are the kind of girls who are always there for someone in trouble. So when Tyler Farr was put on aggressive vocal rest after surgery and needed to pull off friend Lee Brice’s LIFE OFF MY YEARS TOUR, the female duo easily shifted gears and stepped up, performing the first show of opening weekend last night in Salisbury, MD. 

“When they called us, we were scheduled to write because we’re already thinking about our next record – and songwriting is so important to us,” explains Tae Dye. “I couldn’t imagine being in that position, right as you’re about to kick-off a tour...”

“So we figured, we should do this,” Maddie Marlow continues. “Not only are we friends of both Lee and Tyler, when you put good energy into the world, it sets an example of kindness for our fans. We’ll get back to writing next week!”

Putting pen to paper and melodies to lyrics has been a successful passion for the Sugarland, Texan and Ada, Oklahoman. Their second single, “Fly,” was recently certified GOLD and named one of NPR’s Favorite Songs of 2015 in large part for its message of self-empowerment and embracing life even at its most difficult.

“We wrote that song to encourage each other when we kept stumbling,” Tae admits. “We’d have these really bad days and want to give up. But we knew if we did that, the dream couldn't come true...

“‘Fly’ was so different from the sass of ‘Girl In A Country Song,’ it feels good to know that people responded to our more serious, more harmony-driven side,” Maddie picks up. “We love hooks and grooves but we really love a great melody and lyrics that say something about believing in and standing up for yourself. That was the best news so far this year! And we’ve had some great news.”

Beyond winning the CMA Video of the Year Award for “Girl In A Country Song,” now well over 30 million views, the girls received the highly coveted NSAI 10 Songs I Wish I’d Written nod. Their debut album START HERE made the Top 10 on the Nashville Scene Annual Country Music Critics’ Poll and offered up a wealth of songs to entertain fans during their headlining START HERE TOUR. Earlier this week, the pair picked up their second consecutive ACM Awards Vocal Duo of the Year nomination, as well as a nod in the New Vocal Duo or Group category.

“Sometimes we get tired or feel like we need to catch our breath, the fans keep reminding us why we’re here," said Maddie. "We are so blessed to see those faces at shows and their messages on social media.” 

“And who knows? Maybe we’ll just find a couple songs out on the road...,” Tae says. “You never know where inspiration lies. All you have to do is be open to it.”

Maddie & Tae roll into Rochester, NY tonight and Kingston, RI on Saturday then take break to continue their own dates and focus on writing before returning to the LIFE OFF MY YEARS TOUR on April 7 at the Milwaukee Theater. As “Shut Up & Fish” lobs into the Top 30, Maddie & Tae are reeling in all the experience they can.

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.
Jerry is survived by his parents Craig and Karen Greer; his sister Marisa Davis, niece Bailey and nephew Jameson; his sister Alexandra Beaird, her husband Ryan and nephew Cruze; his brother Kyle Greer and his fiancé Chelsea Rogers; and his brother Wyat…

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…
