Once again I want to say thank you to everyone involved in the #CMchattys Awards process: nominees, sponsors, #cmchat contributors, partners, fans, community, family…each and every one of you. Between nominations, semi and finals voting on Twitter, Facebook and our Website App we had about half million votes, which is less than last year, but our voting process only allowed you to vote once per day on our app. We didn’t cap it last year. BIG thanks to to our sponsor Hashtracking for helping track all the hashtags. SPECIAL THANKS to Taylor Crawford and Cassie Wells my incredible interns who’ve been instrumental counting votes and calculating results.
Our #CMchattys Awards Party was awesome and then some thanks to Stephen Saylers, Katie Schnorrbusch, Emily Otteson and Elizabeth Traub, for all of the set up and your work. SO MUCH LOVE. I would have texted ya but as you know someone snagged my phone while I had it charging. BOO. Just so everyone knows, I am not in a foreign land needing people to send me money or moving into pornography as a career. LOL. I can’t stand that there are people out there who for their jobs steal phones and phish malicious links and content from them. I can’t imagine how to explain doing that for a living to my parents. Right? But despite that this was my favorite work trip I’ve taken in such a long time. Between Katie, Elizabeth and Emily, my soul is glowing. Didn’t even know there that was much happy in the world!
THANKS everyone who performed SaraBeth, Jill & Kate, Two Story Road, The Swon Brothers, Tyler Rich, Tyler Reeve, Clayton Anderson, Brett Young, Ray Scott, Morgan Myles, Trailer Choir and Jess Meuse.
#CMchattys are brought to you by Chevrolet, MyCountry.Social, Hostgator and Joe’s on Weed Street. #CMchattys Awards t-shirts presented by Team Cocktail Clothing & Accessories. Hashtags tracked and monitored by Hashtracking. (Learn more about all our sponsors/partners here.)
NOTE that our voting process was designed to be completely organic, 100% of the community by the community for the community. We threw it out to the world and let “the picture paint itself,” with very few rules, except a daily cap on votes and some loose definitions of categories, PLUS the words “must follow social media content producer.”
CONGRATS FINALISTS and if you click on their name you can send them a quick congrats tweet!
