Brad Paisley Surprises Chicago High School Graduation!!!


Nashville, TN – Country superstar Brad Paisley surprised the 754 graduating seniors at Barrington High School, Barrington, IL last evening when he spoke to the class and performed during the graduation ceremony. 

The surprise appearance was the culmination of a contest for seniors to submit posts on INSTAGRAM or TWITTER answering the question: What “Last Time” are you going to miss most about school?  The Barrington High School TV class went above and beyond by creating a fun video that includes mattress surfing down a flight of stairs, pushing their dean into the swimming pool, hitting golf balls on the football field and more. You can view the fun video HERE.

Part way through the graduation program Principal Stephen McWilliams greeted the class and guests and then showed the video on the big screen. After showing the video Principal McWilliams said, “As I watched this video I wondered what would Brad Paisley say if he was giving this speech?” At that time Paisley walked on stage with guitar in hand and the crowd responded with loud applause.

“I’m thrilled to announce the winner of the BP Graduation contest we had. No body beat that – that video you guys made was amazing. I’m going to play a couple songs for you before you go out and make the world a better place,” said Paisley. He continued addressing the students with humor and also serious advice in between performing “Letter To Me,” “Today” and “Last Time For Everything.”

“My advice to you, as you go through life, is to enjoy the moments. Make memories, enjoy them and don’t take yourself too seriously.” When Paisley finished his last song he told the class “Go change the world, you all!"

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.

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…

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…
