Cold Weather Essentials with @TheRankinTwins #RankinRoadRules

Welcome to the second week of Rankin Road Rules.  Last month a friend of mine Laura McKinley introduced me to two of the most adorable Texans I’ve ever met before, Amy and April Rankin, and I immediately fell in love with them.

Life from Steamboat Springs, Colorado for Music Fest 2014 Amy and April Rankin give you some Cold Weather Essentials to survive the winter. They also checked in with some other artists. You might recognize a few. Make sure you let them know you saw them on #RankinRoadRules! Every week the Rankin’s will video blog (vlog) from the road for Country Music Chat #CMchat. Like our very own reality show! Just for you guys.

Make sure you are following The Rankin Twins on Twitter and check out their website.

Growing up in the small Gulf coast town of Portland, Texas, twin sisters Amy and April Rankin have been entertaining spectators since they could walk. The Rankin Twins have a unique charisma that could melt the hardest of hearts while delivering an awe-inspiring and captivating array of music that sets them apart. The Rankin Twins are quickly rising in the local club scenes throughout Texas and are expanding their audience across the state and beyond. Their 2013 release, Moonshine and Maybes, confirms the Rankin Twins are real Texas-country talent with an undeniable quality that makes one fall for them at first sight and sound. The new record proudly displays their stunning vocal harmonies and well-crafted songwriting talents. And they’re not going away anytime soon – it is apparent that the Rankin Twins’ best days are still ahead of them.

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.
