On Monday July 28th Country Music Legend Ronnie Dunn joined us for some Country Music #CMchat and proceeded to BLOW up Twitter with our community. I am not kidding. The feedback from my close friends and our ‘cadre’ was that is was absolutely one of the best Twitterviews we’ve ever “Dunn.” Ronnie answered so many of your questions, gave us the real deal and talked about radio, his show with Kix Brooks and Reba in Las Vegas, where his new music is going and even what he does during his offtime.
We always get our #CMchat Twitterviews starting asking everyone “WHERE are you and what are you WEARing?” How often can your guest drop a selfie like this?

The package for a lucky fan and guest includes round trip plane tickets, two nights at Caesar’s Palace, dinner and tickets to the dynamic show, in addition to a meet-and-greet with the superstars.

“We just finished our first nine shows in Vegas,” continued Dunn. In regards to the sold-out residency, which began in June he elaborated, “Honestly, it’s the most fun I’ve ever had and I’ve played some some cliff hangers over the years. The production, the sound, the crowds are all beyond anything I had imagined and I’m looking forward to the future dates.”
Dunn is continuing to write and record new music. As half of the best-selling duo in Country music history with more than 30 million albums sold, the Texas native’s career already boasts 23 #1 singles and more than 80 industry awards from the Grammys, Country Music Association and a record 27 Academy of Country Music honors. Named Entertainer of the Year four times collectively by the ACM and CMA, Brooks & Dunn consistently remained among Country’s most popular touring acts, a testament both to their showmanship and to their status as one of the true bedrock artists of Country music. Dunn has twice been honored as the BMI Country Songwriter of the Year as well as named the Billboard Magazine’s Country Songwriter of the Year. As a solo artist, Dunn earned two GRAMMY nominations in 2013.

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.
