The Southern Belles have been having a big year thus far. On August 5th, The Southern Belles independently released their third studio album dubbed In The Middle Of The Night, and the group has been touring heavily in recent months in promotion of their latest studio endeavor. While In The Middle Of The Night showcases The Southern Belles’ thoughtful and enthralling songwriting, the southern-style psychedelic rock group has earned many dedicated fans through their patented high-octane performances. Composed of Adrian Ciucci (guitar/vocals), Tommy Booker (keys/vocals), Aaron Zarrow (drums/vocals) and Mikey Sellemi (bass/vocals), The Southern Belles in a live setting put on a can’t-miss show, with its members’ natural and charismatic individual stage presences and tight on-stage chemistry truly bringing their songs to life for a live audience.The Southern Belles Add Layers Of Originality To Their Sound On ‘In The Middle Of The Night’Today, The Southern Belles have announced additional dates for their fall tour, which sees the band touring heavily on the heels of In The Middle Of The Night. While some dates were released previously in August, now, The Southern Belles full 2017 schedule is in the books, and there will be ample opportunity for fans new and old to check out the band on the road. The end of 2017 will see the group traveling across the South and Northeast, covering most of the ground from Connecticut down to Florida. The Southern Belles kick off this new leg of their tour on September 13th with a show at Silk City in Philadelphia, eventually ending their tour three months later in Macon, Georgia on December 16th.It also doesn’t hurt to mention that The Southern Belles are in their prime right now. It’s clear that both fans and musicians alike are excited about their new album, and this energy has been translating to the stage. Their excitement of their latest record is tangible during their live performances, plus the contents of In The Middle Of The Night are a welcome addition to the Belles catalog. As guitarist Adrian Ciucci noted about the album, “This is by far some of the best music we’ve ever recorded. Our style has developed, our song writing has grown tremendously, we sound better and stronger than we have on other records. And I really think the whole thing is just a great story, I hope everyone digs it.”You can check out the full dates for the tour on the poster below, which features artwork from Leslie Herman.

Hendrick Motorsports said Johnson tested negative on Monday and Tuesday and will return to the No. 48 Chevrolet at Kentucky. NASCAR confirmed Wednesday that Johnson has been cleared to return. Johnson’s streak of 663 consecutive starts — most among active drivers — was snapped when he didn’t race Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Manager Terry Francona says Reyes was re-tested for the coronavirus and may now participate in training camp.

Horst won’t say whether a positive test came from a Bucks player or another member of the traveling party.

Major League Baseball and the NBA will make managers and players available only via telephone or Zoom. — The Baltimore Ravens have informed season ticket holders that their seats will not be available this year. The team says season ticket holders will be offered the same seats in 2021, and money already spent for this season can be used for next year or refunded upon request.

The PGA of America says the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin has been pushed back to 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The French manufacturer said in a statement Wednesday that the 38-year-old Alonso will replace Daniel Ricciardo (rih-KAHR’-doh), who is joining McLaren next year.Renault, which struggled in F1 last season, did not say how many seasons Alonso has signed for. He won both of his world titles with Renault in 2005 and ’06. He quit McLaren and F1 at the end of 2018 to focus on winning motorsport’s triple crown.Having already won the Monaco Grand Prix, he then won the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race but not the Indianapolis 500.Alonso won 32 F1 races and is widely considered one of the most talented drivers of his era alongside six-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton.AUSTRALIA-PULLIN DEATH The last time the PGA Tour had back-to-back tournaments on the same golf course was in 1957, five years before Nicklaus turned pro.

July 8, 2020 PGA-WORKDAY OPENHow to make 1 golf course look like 2 different tournamentsDUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Muirfield Village is gearing up for the first doubleheader on the PGA Tour in 63 years. A new tournament called the Workday Charity Open starts Thursday on the course Jack Nicklaus built. And then it’s onto the Memorial, the tournament Nicklaus created. The goal for tour officials is to protect the condition of the course from 157 players this week and 120 players next week. They also want to try to present a different test. That means slower greens, different tees and rough that isn’t quite as high this week. The PGA Tour still hasn’t allowed spectators at its events, and no other golf tournament is dependent on partisan cheering like the Ryder Cup. After working with the PGA Tour and its Presidents Cup, the decision was reached to move the Ryder Cup to Sept. 24-26 in 2021. That means the Presidents Cup will return to even-numbered years starting in 2022 at Quail Hollow in North Carolina.The Ryder Cup had been scheduled for Sept. 25-27 at Whistling Straits, one week after the U.S. Open.It’s the second time in the last two decades the Ryder Cup was postponed. It was moved off the odd-numbered years in 2001 because of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.In other developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic:— NASCAR will move its August road course race from Watkins Glen in upstate New York because of state health restrictions, and the event will shift instead to the road course at Daytona International Speedway. The move means the Cup Series will make its debut on Daytona’s road course, which is used by the IMSA sports car series and incorporates part of the famed 2.5-mile oval. The race on Aug. 16 was necessary to move from Watkins Glen because NASCAR cannot meet New York’s quarantine requirements for out-of-state visitors.
