Ever thought that if you tweeted your favorite celebrity, musician, athlete, public figure that you might actually end up meeting them in real life, or maybe even falling in love, get married and making babies?
Well for Jessa Lee (Yantz) and Randy Houser, this is a true story.
Nearly 2 years ago I was in Nashville for the CMA Awards and attending that Broken Bow Records Label Party and had the chance to meet Jessa Lee Houser. We got to talking about Social Media, and she told me how her and Randy had actually met on Twitter. At the time I didn’t have a blog or really any where to post it so I passed the info to my good buddy, CMChat Correspondent Dan Van Landingham because he was going to be interviewing Randy at an upcoming concert. Now that the CMChatLIVE website is up and rolling you can listen here:
“We did. We actually met on Twitter, yeah. She had messaged me.. had a tweet out there or something that she had loved one of the songs that was on my last record. And it was one of those songs that I had written that nobody had really paid much attention to. It was a song that I really loved, and it hit me that she had recognized that song and I sent a message back and I said, ‘Thank you for recognizing this particular song’ because it was one of my favorites. And she tweeted back, and we just started talking. That’s how it started.”
