For anyone who read my recent post about chats, it should be self-evident that I am a Twitter Chat Enthusiast. One of the coolest and kindest people I’ve been blessed to know on Twitter is Jessica Northey. Jessica is sexy, sassy, smart & savvy (and I’m not just saying that because I love her. She is all those things and more … )
For those twelve people out there who don’t about her, here’s a little background on our girl. Jessica is a SocialMediologist Extraordinaire. She is a writer, blogger, nationally recognized speaker, On-Air personality and SocialPR Expert who owns Social Media boutique firm Finger Candy Media where she strategically employs Social Media to help celebrities, musicians, and businesses accomplish their goals. She is truly passionate about helping other people reach for their dreams and is a total ‘GO-Giver’! I can personally vouch for that; Jessica ‘Goes & Gives’ generously every single day.
On Monday, she had the brilliant idea to start a Twitter Chat. Just like that. In less than five hours. (This felt a little bit like that time I had nine days to plan my BFFs wedding for 300 guests) I was thrilled to share co-hosting honours with Serial Twitter Chat Aficionado Dabney Porte.
The brainwave: #CMChat “Meet your Neighbor”, bringing together some of Jessica’s friends who are big names in the Country Music industry with a lot of us very hip regular folks. The inaugural #CMChat started off like with a rumble like a volcano threat. We fired up the chat at 7pm PST/10pm EST and within minutes, the action was flowing like hot lava. The neighbors warmed up to each other, sharing smiles, stories and songs. A loud lovin’ garden party where the weather was fine!

We are stoked for next week’s chat with guest host Larry Parigis. Larry owns Nine North Records, Nashville’s first virtual record label. He provides promotion and marketing services to country artists & is also responsible for breaking acts like the Dixie Chicks, Gretchen Wilson, Montgomery Gentry, Van Zant, Miranda Lambert, Buddy Jewell to name a few. He is inspiring, fun-loving, and intelligent. He is also really tall – so you know he’s a gotta be a great guy!
