Craig Morgan looses his mom, Chris Young gets schooled by Joe Don and Tonight's Tweets

Sad news for Craig Morgan whose mother, Betty Sue Crockett, died Saturday from pancreatic cancer. Thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this time! Craig sang about the strength of a woman facing cancer in his 2007 number-one hit "Tough." At the time, his wife had just been diagnosed with a pre-cancerous virus. If you're interested, memorials may be made to Center for Pancreatic Cancer research or to Billy's Place (a home to be built for displaced children) c/o Taylor Funeral Home, 214 N. Main St. Dickson, TN 37055.

Another sad part to this story...the obit in the TN paper had to include this line, "With respect the family asks that no cell phones, cameras or videos be present during their visitation and funeral service." Shouldn't that be a given?! I blame Gary Coleman's ex-wife for this!

Kenny Chesney will present at the 18th Annual ESPY Awards July 14 at 9pm ET on ESPN-TV. Will Ferrell, Brooklyn Decker, Chris Berman, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Ashley Greene, Samuel L. Jackson and others are scheduled to appear. Kenny will also be featured during a Mike & Mike pre-show broadcast.

Newly engaged Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs are already hitting some snags in planning their wedding. Kellie writes on Twitter, "So, my fiance and I have come to the conclusion that making "the list" (people to invite to the wedding) is the hardest part so far." So true! And even harder for those of us who aren't rich and famous lol

Chris Young loved his first weekend on the Rascal Flatts tour a week or so ago. The guys all came together a few times to play hoops and although Chris definitely has the height advantage over Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney, that didn’t stop one of the headliners from taking Chris to school. “Joe Don did make a shot over me,” Chris concedes to Country Weekly.
“But to be fair, it was 108-degree heat index and I had played two games already, and he walked in fresh,” Chris explains. “I’m not knockin’ Joe Don’s skills. I’m just sayin’.”

Tonight's Tweets:

@KevinFowler: Does is make me a redneck if my set list is written on a Tractor Supply flyer? Everybody's pickin' on me for it. http://twitpic.com/23bnmy

@JustinColeMoore: Just saw a buffalo takin a dump. Im a first-timer, so don't mock my excitement...

@leannrimes: Taking a break from twitter for a while. It's unhealthy for me and my family to have to read negative comments from people who's opinions have no bearing on my life. I love my fans so very much and will return one day soon. God bless to you all! I hope you understand. It's time for me to focus on healing, my happiness and my music. I can't wait to share it all with my fans soon!
