Will Sing for Trash #DontMessWithTexas feat The Rankin Twins & Kevin Fowler

We know everything is BIGGER in Texas and apparently, trash is too. SO they came up with this very clever TV CANpaign to get the ‘mess’ of the streets and into the can.  Starring #CMchat featured artists The Rankin Twins and rescent Twitterview guest Kevin Fowler this is a must watch.  You can catch “Rankin Road Rules” every week right her on CMchatLIVE.com!

Don’t mess with Texas® “CANpaign” gets new look, reminds drivers not to trash Texas roadways.


Back in 1985, Texas had a big problem with litter on the side of the highways. To battle this big, expensive roadside mess, the Texas Highway Commission launched an extensive public education campaign. Using research, they identified the state’s worst offenders and how best to reach them, and with that — the legend was born. They’ve been encouraging Texans to keep litter off the roads ever since. Don’t mess with Texas has been a great success, using iconic Texas celebrities to help spread they message from Willie Nelson to George Strait, athletes like George Foreman and Randy White, and even a stealthy World War II-era B-17 bomber to remind Texans what Don’t mess with Texas really means.

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.
