Country Artists (Singers & Songwriters) Using Social Media

It’s interesting to see the traffic that comes to this site and the search terms they use to find it. :)

Shortly after I published a post about wanting to date a country singer on my recent trip through nashville, I noticed that people were finding this site while googling “Country Artists Using Social Media” and I was a little perplexed. After all, I’m not really a big country fan. (Check out my blip station for proof: http://blip.fm/josephranseth)

But, you have to give the people what they want, so I decided to look into it. I sent out a tweet asking:

Who are your favorite Country Artists on twitter or in social media? #poll

I got some great responses and met a few great people along the way. Take a peek for yourself…

Rascal Flatts

One of the first answers that came up was Rascal Flatts. Even those who aren’t even remotely interested in country music will know some Rascal Flatts songs. Being Canadian, I love their version of Tom Cochrane’s Life Is A Highway that was featured in the animated movie Cars.  Have you seen it? :)

Although the band is visible on many social media channels, it looks like bandmember @JayDeMarcus is actually interactive and tries to engage with his fans & followers. (Do you think he’ll comment on this post?)

To connect with Rascal Flatts, visit www.RascalFlatts.com or check them out on your favorite social media channel: Facebook, Twitter (@RascalFlatts) or at Youtube.com/RascalFlatts.

Again, not being the biggest country fan, I hadn’t heard of Blake Shelton before, but according to @AshleyGross:

@BlakeShelton is crazy-active!

I checked him out and verified that he does manage his own twitter feed: @BlakeShelton. I don’t know about his other channels, but if you want to get to know the real BS, send him a tweet!

I have to admit, the video of his song Hillbilly Bone was enough to score thumbs up from me. :)

Check out his homepage: www.BlakeShelton.com or if you are active on social media, you can find his facebook fan page: Facebook.com/BlakeShelton or his YouTube channel: YouTube.com/BlakeShelton

Mary Chapin Carpenter

Here’s one that I was particularly impressed with.

Having grown up in a small country town, I heard Mary Chapin’s songs on the radio all the time.

She was also recommended to me by more of my twitter followers than anyone else.

If you aren’t familiar with Mary Chapin Carpenter, check out her website for more information: MaryChapinCarpenter.com or if you are a fan already, connect with her on Twitter: @M_CCarpenter or on her official facebook page: Facebook.com/OfficialMaryChapin
