Hot Off the Press of the Interwebs #TrueNorthey

AND it was another really big week here at Country Music #CMchat! Our team is growing; we now have two amazing interns, as well as a salesperson, and a manager/agent (well, I do anyway!). I am happy to be expanding and creating a legacy of we. Everyone works very hard around the clock to follow what’s going on and bring you creative, original content.  

In case you didn’t know, all of this has been my full time job for nearing on 7 years this December (#CMchat is only 3 1/2 years old). That includes being me, this blog, hosting #CMchat/Twangout, hosting outside events, corresponding, consulting, etc. I love the notes people send me and I am such a big believer in the “you gotta give it away to keep it” motto when it comes to learning. With that said, this is my full-time job, how I put roof over my head, food on the table, gas in the tank, and money in the bank. There are people on my team who do full-time social media management and I do private consulting on a per project basis, depending on the client or the project. I am very aware of what my sphere of knowledge is and only take projects I know I can slay. 😉

Now to be a little bit of tease….I will be in New York on Monday and might just be hanging out with this guy somewhere….

Last week’s #WhoseBoots? were from Brantley Gilbert’s feet! Congratulations to our winner Lin Alayna!! She won a $150 gift Certificate to GypsySoule!


#WhoseBoots is much tougher this week, but I think if you take a gamble you might just figure out who this Hall-of-Famer is!

This week’s Digital Duel….

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 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.
