Urban as a judge on American Idol, saying he is a perfect fit. "If
anyone can be objective, constructive and tell people what it's gonna

family and it's so nice to have someone from Nashville be a part of my
American Idol family" says Underwood.

"It's dramatic, juicy, just something about it. You can see it playing
out in head as listening. It seemed to work and I couldn't imagine
anyone else singing it but me. I said to my manager, I have to sing this
song" says Underwood.

Updated conservatorship statute effective July 1
May 21, 2013 12:49 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has signed into law revisions to the state conservatorship statute.
The law allows the court to appoint a conservator to manage the assets of a person a judge finds unable to handle his or her own affairs.
State Rep. Andrew Farmer, a Sevierville Republican, told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1183hjy ) the intent of the bill he sponsored in the House is to make sure people aren't being taken advantage of.
The bill sprang from a series of hearings statewide by the Tennessee Bar Association. They revealed there were no uniform procedures for placing a person's assets under a conservator on an emergency basis.
The changes take effect July 1.
