Still looks like headline stealing to me. CMT sure could have done a better job.
Was that pic on his sites before the incident? If not, it looks more like I was saying.
“Was that pic on his sites before the incident?”
The photo was on Munley’s Twitter page.
He’s very cute!!
So CMT is screwed up for their poor writing?
If so, I an buy that.
Glad to know who he is.... my first thought seeing the pic this AM was “She can do better than that guy”
The pic was on HER Twitter page and the media piced up on it. Then it hit the Twitter world and went Viral, THEN Dierks tweeted about it AFTER he got asked thousands of times.
Dierks and Paisley are constantly tweeting their fans. I have Twitter set to send selected Tweets to my phone everyday and I get Dierks and Paisleys because they are entertaining. You get a look into all the stuff that goes on during their Tour. They have a running photoshop and prank war going on between them.
So something like this is not out of the ordinary for either of them cuz they constantly mention fans by name. From all the Tweets I have got from either it would be very out of character for either to exploit something like this.
This new Twitter World is different. They get to have a constant running conversation with fans and I have yet to see any of the country artists who abuse it. Big Kenny (of Big and Rich) also is a prolific tweeter and he mentions fans as well and also shares interesting pics and vids of his daily activities. Really cool stuff like a behind the scenes look at a video he shot with Native Americans.
Both are big supporters of our troops and those that serve on our Police Forces and Fire Depts and the EMS.
Do they do stuff like this to promote their careers, most certainly BUT there isn't some suit type going "Tweet this because it will make you look good" its just them and texting phone showing the world they live in when on tour our back stage.
Most of the stuff is very interesting and a major portion is them showing fans they meet. You rarely see a Pic of Paisley on his tweets unless its self effacing same with Dierks. Its always the people he interacts with. This could be anyone from Carrie Underwood to Tina the waitress who brought him his biscuits and gravy and the Dennys they stopped at while in Columbus Ohio.
The only regular pics you ever see of themselves on the Tweets is when they give their Phones to the roadies to take pics of their show while its going on. These pics are a big hit with the fans.
Ok, I’ll buy that. The way the CMT article was worded made me think that Bentley was glomming onto her new found fame in a very sick way.
I’ll back off that opinion now.
Thanks...it’s now free and easy down the road I’ll go!
