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.

Hall of Fame member Bonnie Brown Dead at 77.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 16, 2016) – Bonnie Brown Ring, one-third of one of Country Music’s most enduring family groups as a member of The Browns, passed away earlier today (July 16) at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas following complications from lung cancer. She was 77 years old.


Born July 31, 1938 in Sparkman, Arkansas, Brown became enamored with music at an early age – thanks to the exposure she had to it from watching her older siblings, Maxine and James Edward. The two performed together, earning a hit in 1954 with “Looking Back To See.” Upon her graduation from high school, Bonnie joined her siblings, expanding their duet into a trio.

They began performing together on The Louisiana Hayride on KWKH in Shreveport, which led to appearances on ABC-TV’s Ozark Jubilee. Chet Atkins and RCA came calling soon after, and the Browns found themselves on the chart with hits such as “I Take The Chance” and “I Heard The Bluebirds Sing.” James Edward (now known as Jim Ed) was drafted in 1957, but the trio still managed to find time to record when he was on leave.

By 1959, the group recorded what would turn out to be one of the biggest hits of the era in “The Three Bells.” The song topped the Billboard Country charts – their first, and also crossed over to the apex of the Hot 100. The exposure of that hit led to appearances on every major variety series of the day, such as The Ed Sullivan Show. With her southern charm and stunning looks, Brown attracted the attention of many of the hottest male artists of the day, including Elvis Presley. The hits continued, with “Scarlet Ribbons,” “The Old Lamplighter,” and “Then I’ll Stop Loving You” all being showcases for their rich harmonies, where Bonnie sang the high harmony parts. The Grand Ole Opry came calling in 1963, inviting The Browns to become members.


Still a touring and recording favorite, Bonnie and Maxine decided to leave the trio in 1967 – citing a desire to spend more time with their growing families. Jim Ed continued on as a performer, with hits to his credit such as “Pop A Top.” He also remained a member of the Opry, where his sisters would join him from time to time.

In March of 2015, it was announced that The Browns would be among the new inductees for the new class of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Jim Ed passed away following his own battle with cancer prior to the official Medallion Ceremony that fall, though he was presented with his medallion a few days prior to his passing. Not too long after the Hall of Fame announcement, Bonnie announced that she too had been diagnosed with cancer, but was in attendance at the Hall for the induction ceremony in October.

The music of the Browns was known and loved all over the world, prompting the Country Music Hall of Fame CEO Kyle Young to say “When Bonnie Brown joined her brother, Jim Ed, and her sister, Maxine, in song, the siblings created an incomparable harmony: the smoothest and most elegant blend in country music. Bonnie offered harmony offstage as well. She brought people together with regal grace and kindness. She lived a remarkable life, singing on grand stages, raising a beloved family, entering the Country Music Hall of Fame, and breaking up with young Elvis Presley because he was, she said, a lousy kisser. Today, she is reunited with Jim Ed, and with her husband of 56 years, Brownie Ring.”


Bonnie Brown is survived by two daughters, Kelly (Ed) Bulleit, and Robin (Rob) Shaver, Kelly’s children, Clark, Kendall, and Raleigh, as well as Robin’s offspring, Skylar and Stone, and of course, by her sister, Maxine.

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 of ingredients from two of our top-selling ice cream flavors," the company goes on to say. "Find out all the sweet details this Friday when we reveal the new flavor and release it to stores the same day!"
The new flavor will be announced Friday, and will be available in most stores the same day.

Help Support West Virginia!!!


Let's Begin The Recovery

On June 23rd, my home state of West Virginia experienced tremendous flooding that killed over 20 people and destroyed entire small towns. Three counties have been declared federal disasters and 44 of the 55 counties have been declared in a state of emergency. Now that the waters are receding it's time to pitch in and help in any way we can. One of the best ways I have found that hopefully will raise the largest amount of money the quickest and get it to the people in need the fastest is through GoFundMe.

I have set a goal of $1 million -- this is doable and only a small portion of what is needed. 

All funds donated will be distributed through West Virginia Flood Relief 2016 - The Brad Paisley Foundation at WESBANCO Trust Department in Wheeling, WV.
