I am beyond excited to welcome the one and only Bubba Sparxxx  for a VIDEO #CMchat  that is part +TWANGOUT and part Sweet Home Social  with +Jenni Hogan rounding out the Country Cadre this Wednesday November 13 at 11aPT/2pET.

If you can't join us live, feel free to leave questions here for Bubba!

MORE ABOUT BUBBA
It seems like Country Rap is starting to take over mainstream. With the recent success of Colt Ford and The Lacs along with current “rap style” hits by country mega stars Jason Aldean (Dirt Road Anthem), Toby Keith (Red Solo Cup) and Tim McGraw (Truck Yeah) one would think that this is a new concept. 

But you may recall this movement actual began in 2001 with the release of Bubba Sparxxx’s debut album “Dark Days, Bright Nights”

The video for the first single “Ugly” featured Bubba and pals in the mud with pigs, on tractors and performing in front of a house covered with bug lights. If that’s not the epitome of Country, then nothing is.

Fast forward 11 years and you find Bubba re-uniting with his original collaborator  *Shannon “Fat Shan” Houchins*  who has built the successful record label Average Joe’s Entertainment on the foundation of blending musical genres.

“Bubba and I grew up listening to hip-hop and riding in jacked up trucks.”  Houchins says,  _“I was producing mainstream rap and R&B records when Bubs first came to me and said ‘why don’t we combine the music we like with lyrics about the lifestyle we live’."_

This wake up call led to the creation of the movement.

+Country Music Chat ~ #CMchat+  is excited to welcome Charlie Peacock  for a LIVE #CMchat VIDEO +TWANGOUT  on Thursday September 5th starting at 5pPT/8pET co-hosted by +Jessica Northey    and +Baron Lane   from TwangNation.com!

About Charlie Peacock
The Grammy Award-winning, multi-format performer, songwriter and record producer has excelled in pop, gospel, country, Folk-Americana, and jazz. Peacock began his iconoclastic artist, songwriting and production career in the 1980s with recordings for A&M, Island, and Sparrow/EMI. Alongside his own unique performing and recording career, Peacock has played a lead role in creating major hits in three separate decades—most notably Amy Grant’s “Every Heartbeat” (1991), Switchfoot’s “Dare You to Move” (2002) and The Civil Wars’ Gold debut album Barton Hollow (2011) - earning Grammys for Best Folk Album and Country Duo. Named by Billboard’s Encyclopedia of Record Producers as one of the 500 most important record producers in music history, the award-winning artist-producer is known as a deeply committed advocate of artistic freedom and risk. In 2012 Peacock diverted from his recent jazz recordings to produce his own return to vocal performance, the Folk/Americana flavored No Man’s Land.

Get ready to +TWANGOUT with +Cowboy Troy +Big Smo +Jessica Northey and the rest of the #CountryCadre  this Thursday at 6pPT/9pET talking Hick Hop and Country Music.

#HickHoptober   #Cmchat   #CountryMusic  
 
Defining Hick hop/Country Rap, I’d say it’s a sub-genre of country music, that just as it sounds, blends Country Music and hip hop style rapping.  USA Today recently ran a story explaining the context, “country narratives that add rap’s heavy bass and aggression to story lines about pickup-driving, beer-swillin’, chicken-and-biscuit-eating good ol’ boys.”

I am excited to welcome both +Cowboy Troy & +Big Smo  two very distinctive styles of   #HickHop   via a Google plus Video #CMchat +TWANGOUT with +Jessica Northey   to talk Hick Hop & Country Rap Thursday October 10 6pPT/9pET right here on, making this a #HickHoptober to remember!

Rest in peace Possum! Your legacy will live forever!
#GeorgeJones  
 
RIP POSSUM
Country Music has lost a legend today. 

George Jones has died at the age of 81. Jones' best-loved songs included 'He Stopped Loving Her Today,' one of his fourteen No. 1 hits on the country charts

Jones passed away today at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville after being hospitalized with fever and irregular blood pressure.

Known for his clenched, precise baritone, Jones had No. 1 songs in five separate decades, 1950s to 1990s, and was idolized not just by fellow country singers, but by Frank Sinatra, Pete Townshend, Elvis Costello, James Taylor and countless others.

In a career that lasted more than 50 years, "Possum" recorded more than 150 albums and became the champion and symbol of traditional country music, a well-lined link to his hero, Hank Williams.

 Sending love & prayers to his family, friends & fans everywhere.

CMchatLIVE.com is the home of the largest organized Music Community and Country Music Chat aka #CMchat.
Founded by Jessica Northey.

What does #CMchat mean?

- The # symbol, is called a “hashtag”, “pound” or “number” sign, and can be used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet on the Social Media platform Twitter. The hashtag (#) was originally invented as a label for groups and topics in IRC chat. By adding the ‘#’ sign before a string of text, users made that string easy to find in a search. The hashtag (#) went mainstream on Twitter when “Tweeters” organically began to use it as a way to categorize messages.

- “CM” stands for Country Music!

- “Chat” means conversation between anyone using “#CMchat” in a tweet who likes to listen, discuss and share Country Music Industry information with other Country Music enthusiasts!

If you have spent any time on Twitter, you have probably noticed that there are many conversations going on at the same time. By using a hashtag (#) you are able to filter through the noise and find folks who are singing your tune!


Every Monday night beginning at 6pmPT/9pmET,
 #CMchat has an open source Q&A style discussion with Country Music Celebrities hosted by Jessica Northey. During this hour long conversation on Twitter Jessica asks guests about 7-10 questions for the first 30 minutes, and then the guests usually take questions from the entire community for the second half. (Sometimes the format varies depending on the guest

#CMchat covers different topics from getting your music played on the radio, to Social Media strategy, and of course the inside scoop from Country Music Artists, Broadcasting Personalities, Radio & Label Executives and Fans alike.

There aren’t any  no rules for the community, but we do have guidelines that have become tradition through a group conscience.
Obviously there is promotional value for any guest to be exposed to this community but they are still taking time out of there busy schedules and family time.

- PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT DROP URL LINKS TO YOUR MUSIC, YOUR WEBSITE etc FROM 6-7pmPST/9-10pmEST.

- PROFANITY IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED

- SPAMMING ARTISTS/CELEBRITY GUESTS to listen to your music, demanding they follow you, asking them for free stuff, and unsolicited music/videos is discouraged. We want guests to have a positive image of our community!

- BULLYING OTHERS and using the #CMchat hashtag will get you reported, ignored by this community and blocked by me.
