Monday, 2:00 PM

Eric AdkinsScotty McCreery became a trending topic on Facebook over the weekend when the Grand Ole Opry posted the video for his June 10 performance of new song “Five More Minutes” on YouTube, where it now has more than 176,000 views.

As McCreery emotionally explains in the video, he wrote the poignant story song just a few weeks after losing a grandfather he was very close to. Said McCreery, “He’s never heard this song, but I know he’s watching and very proud of me.”

In the lyrics, McCreery sings, “At 86 my grandpa said there’s angels in the room/With all the family gathered ’round knew the time was coming soon/With so much left to say I prayed, Lord, I ain’t finished/Just give us five more minutes.”

Jason Aldean Impersonator Defrauds Disabled Woman

Monday, 10:00 AM

Photo: Largo Police DepartmentA Florida man who impersonated singer Jason Aldean has been accused by police of defrauding an intellectually disabled woman for both money and sex.

Tampa, Fla., TV station WFLA reports that Pinellas County resident Daniel Farris pretended to be the country music star and convinced the victim he was Aldean.

Largo Police say Farris asked the unidentified woman for $2,000, and she gave him a total of $230 over two occasions. Police say he also convinced the woman to have sex with him.

Farris allegedly posed as Aldean on Facebook, and also posed as a friend of Aldean’s in an effort to collect the money. “Allegedly, Farris would collect the funds by telling the victim Jason Aldean loved her, but was on tour and his friend needed the money,” WFLA reports.

According to a police affidavit, Farris admitted to taking the victim’s money and used it to fund his prescription pill addiction.
