It’s officially Fall….and here I am Blog-casting LIVE….from my bed! I am under the weather this weekend, which sucks cause the weather is freaking awesome. Had a quick work trip to New York for the Virgin Galactic/Grey Goose Party with Richard Branson, brought back some rain, along with some head and tummy pain. However, I have been trying to be consistent in keeping up with this weekly CMchatLIVE.com, #CMchat and True Northey recap, so here it goes….
There is so much happening right now that I don’t even know where to start, so we’ll kinda just jump in. Sound good?
First of all CONGRATS to Country Music #CMchat Feature Editor/Writer Tyler Winters and his wife Emily on the birth of their baby girl! Can we just talk about how awesome his wife looks after JUST having had a baby??? Seriously!
Obviously one of the biggest things this past week, sheesh in the history of Country Music Chat, was having Clint Black as a guest and is was as incredible as I imagined it would be.
What did you think of the Chat? Clint is amazing and my new Verizon #VZWBuzz phone was on fire trying to keep up with all of you! In case you missed it, you can check out the Twitterview wrap-up here.
We also had Caroline Kole for Humpday Hookup Twitterview.
BIG AND RICH TWITTERVIEW on #CMchat MONDAY 9/29
Have you listening to the new album “Gravity” yet? It pretty awesome, I am on my 50th listen already, at least.
RAY SCOTT Listen’N Tweet PARTY Tues 9/30
Can’t wait to share Ray’s new self-titled Album Ray Scott with you guys. I believe it is going to resonate well with listeners. Also it was produced by current CMA Awards Nominee Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark 12 Stories) and he’ll be around to support the live tweet party!
HUMPDAY HOOKUP #CMchat with NATIVE RUN Wed 10/1
JUST ANNOUNCED so YOU’RE SEEING it HERE FIRST:
Our October schedule for you guys is really shaping up quite nicely.
Love and Theft Monday October 6 for a #CMchat Twitterview
Swon Brothers Tuesday October 14 for Video#CMchat SWANGOUT
Cassadee Pope Monday October 27 for #CMchat Twitterview
PLUS, we have Craig Morgan re-scheduled for 11/10 and are adding Jana Kramer to our December schedule #SaveTheDate 12/8.
I am working on filling in the weeks to bring you some of the biggest, best and most awesome folks in Country Music. I am also working on a new project so, most likely, #CMchat will just be the Monday night Twitterview, unless something comes up. We love doing the Humpday Hookup and you’ll probably see the logo chatting it up with various folks, but I will be doing a couple other projects around the entertainment industry. Not being vague, just don’t really know how to explain it right now. LOL
