Before they take the ACM Awards stage in Dallas next week, Country Music superstars and ACM co-hosts Bluke (aka Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton) will hit the stage in Arizona at Country Thunder April 9-12, 2015. But that’s just the beginning. In addition, Country Thunder has added some of Country Music’s biggest names and fastest-rising stars, including Brett Eldredge, Big & Rich, Dustin Lynch, Joe Nichols, Jerrod Niemann, Diamond Rio, Phil Vassar, The Swon Brothers, The Railers, Maddie & Tae, Old Dominion, John Michael Montgomery, Love and Theft, Logan Mize, Clare Dunn and more.
I am excited to see some old friends and hear amazing music this weekend, so I made a list of things I’d like to do…again.
1. Have a Hell of a Night with Dustin
(for reals people…this happened!)
2. Having Sangria with Blake
(I’ll tell him where this time…#NotALoser)
3. Being Seen by Luke
(but hope he smiles for our next selfie…)
4. Meaning Something to Brett
(look at those baby blues…)
5. Running Away with John and Kenny
(this didn’t happen yet, but it could, right John?)
6. Whiskey with Stephen and Eric
7. Have Colton and Zach Pray for Me
(and my liver)
8. Give Jerrod His Buzz Back
(and his cowboy hat…..I love his look but he rocks, er I mean Countrys, that hat!)

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.
