Tickets on sale now for 2014 City Of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge #StrikeOutCancer #CMAfest2014

For 24 years now Country Music Stars have stepped up to the plate, the home plate that is, to help City of Hope Strike Out Cancer!

One in three women and one in two men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. During the CMA Music Festival, a star-studded roster of Country Music’s hottest performers and personalities join forces to help strike out the disease. Last year stars including Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Chase Rice, Phil Vaasar, Florida Georgia Line, Craig Campbell, Greg Bates, Chuck Wicks, Kree Harrison and Olympic figure skating champion Scott Hamilton as well as National Radio Personalities Bobby Bones and Blair Garner all joined cancer survivors to participate in City of Hope’s Celebrity Softball Challenge presented by Staples and emceed by Storme Warren from GAC’s Headline Country.

Over the years, the game has raised well over $2 million dollars benefiting City of Hope’s life-saving mission – finding cures and better treatments for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.  I am thrilled to be a Social Media Ambassador this year and will be on-site with interviews, pics and sorts of Socialness to help make Social Media Outreach a Home run!

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.
