It’s been over a month since CMA Fest and I feel I am STILL RECOVERING from all the fun. Did you go? What did you think? Can you believe that heat? Hope you stayed cool like I did in AT&T U-verse Fan Fair X. That is definitely the way to do CMA Fest!
I spent the majority of my time focused on #WomenInCountry, interviewing them and going to their shows. It was fascinating because of the energy and passion around the recent “Tomato Gate” controversy that has prompted so many industry folks to really step up and pay attention to the women in country music, and deservingly so. One of those entities that has been really focused on featuring Women in Country Music is AT&T U-verse Country Deep. In fact, you can always stay up-to-date with your favorite #WomenInCountry on Country Deep, only on AT&T U-verse.
In case you missed CMA Fest or the activities at AT&T U-verse Showcase Stage, you can catch them on Country Deep uverse.us/COUNTRYDEEPCMAFEST. You can see new and established artists, watch videos, catch replays of live performances, and more. You gotta love what Country Deep has been doing to help women in country music, currently spotlighting rising females in country music, and creating an initiative honoring Women in Country (#WomenInCountry).
Here are some of my favorite moments:

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat.
It all started with a hunch…back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.)
I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
