Faster Horses Big Success

FOURTH ANNUAL FASTER HORSES FESTIVAL CONTINUES
STRONG CONNECTION WITH OVER 40,000 FANS 
RETURNING TO THE PARTY OF THE SUMMER

Three-Day Country Music And Camping Festival Announces
It Will Return In 2017 On July 21, 22, 23



Nashville, TN - July 18, 2016 - The fourth annual Faster Horses raced into town this past weekend, as the sprawling, picturesque Irish Hills of Brooklyn, MI played host. Over 40,000 fans returned to the region's summer staple to enjoy performances from country music's elite including Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Lady Antebellum and many more. As campers arrived on Thursday, and with fan’s spirits at the forefront of priorities, the first-ever "Budweiser Campfire Kickoff” took place in the center of the festival’s campgrounds as a rowdy set from LoCash, as well as a stacked lineup of local artists, set the pace for the weekend’s festivities.




“From the first year of Faster Horses, we knew we were onto something really special,” said Brian O’Connell, Live Nation President of Country Touring. “The fans have fully embraced what this festival is all about - community - and ran with it further than we could have ever imagined.  I get the same vibe in the campgrounds with the fans, as I do with the artists backstage.  Everyone came with an amazing, positive outlook on the weekend and the result was off the charts, crazy fun had by all. So much fun actually, that we decided to go ahead and tell fans when we’ll be back in 2017 already - see you next July!”

Since its inception just three years ago, Faster Horses Festival has attracted an intensely loyal fan following with communities returning year after year, while at the same time quickly achieving the status as an artist must-play.  Fan staples, such as an eclectic lineup on the festival’s second stage, known as “Next From Nashville” and the annual campsite decorating competition, that saw fans pulling out all the stops to perfect the winning Luau theme returned, and other new additions proved successful. A fun run on Saturday dubbed “Faster Humans," enticed fans to emerge from their campsites in droves to race around the speedway track and the Budweiser Clydesdales greeted attendees as they entered the festival grounds, in a nod to the festival’s name.

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…
