CountryMusicTattleTale.com, or CMTT for short, is the result of a hobby turned…well…some may call an obsession.
At first, CMTT was just a way to share our love for Country Music with fellow fans. Over time, it grew into something more. Living in Nashville, there is no shortage of media covering events, but we did notice a shortage of one thing, people who actual enjoy country music covering events and artists. Who would have thought that music and artists being covered by people who actually listen to it would be a new angle?
CMTT strives to provide the latest news, reviews, and photos of country music related topics…Not just the gossip our name suggests. We also strive to give fans a place to comment; welcoming feedback, opinions and content from our readers….so BRING IT ON!!! In the end, we are all after the same thing…to spread the love of Country Music to as many folks as possible.
WHO ARE WE??
Jessica, AKA Country Girl:
I was born and raised in Ohio listening to an assortment of music. My parents influence was mostly rock induced; Alice Cooper, The Who, ZZ Top and the Rolling Stones. Country music very rarely came on the radio in our house but you better believe I knew every word to every Moody Blues song by the time I was five.
I moved to Tennessee in 1999 and country music stole my heart. The emotion in the lyrics and the rawness in the music made it hard for me to not run down to the honkey tonks on Broadway every weekend for a fix. Rascal Flatts may not have been my first country concert but once I saw them live I must say the bar was set pretty high. I make no secret of my love for those three. Their songs are the soundtrack of my life.
I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted Country Music Tattle Tale to be when we launched in September of 2008 but I am proud to say that it has far exceeded anything I could have written down on paper. The people we have met and the opportunities we have been given are out of this world and I look forward to many more years to come.
Tanya, AKA Tawny Tucker:
I grew-up in Wisconsin listening to Garth, Alan, Ricky Van Shelton, and my name sake; Tanya Tucker. After moving to Tennessee and getting my journalism degree from MTSU I met Jessica and the rest is history. We bonded over our love of music and she welcomed me to CMTT with open arms. I love a good guitar riff so Keith Urban is my favorite…But I’ll listen to just about anything.
My two girls are taking after their mom and are often seen ‘shakin it’ to Luke Bryan or belting out their “best” to Taylor Swift.
Over all, I’m just a girl who enjoys country music in all its forms. But, I’m also a firm believer in giving fans a voice to agree and disagree with each other and share their opinions on the artists they helped give success. I may sometimes step on toes, but that’s definitely not my intention.
Meet Our CMTT Music Contributors:
When your mom takes you to an Alabama concert at the ripe age of 2 years old, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up with at least a fascination about music. I grew up in Virginia and studied mass communications at Virginia Commonwealth University before moving to Nashville in 2007. During college, I was able to travel quite a bit and met some of my best friends at concerts across the country. I also learned a lot about the industry that supports musicians, which ultimately led me to pursuing a career in Nashville.
Since I’ve lived in Music City, my world has been turned upside down for the better. I’ve had the pleasure of working in various facets of the music industry over the past 9 years and am still passionate about the music, fans, and the industry as a whole. Helping artists share their stories and connect to fans through CMTT is why I’m here!
