At age 14, rising artist Tegan Marie has a talent that most veteran songwriters would love to have. And that is to write a killer song that radiates happiness and positivity whenever it’s time to write. She’s been writing her whole life and has enough material for at least three albums already. But at this stage in her young adulthood and career, she’s writing what she knows with a full heart that has yet to experience any major heartache or loss.
On the night of the 75th annual Golden Globes, Kalie Shorr dressed in black and went to a viewing party at her friend Kim Paige’s house. Other girlfriends were there rocking the same matching color as a show of solidarity with the Hollywood actors supporting the Time’s Up movement at the ceremony. Shorr says everything the female winners said onstage at the Beverly Hilton that night was something she and her girlfriends needed to hear.
Editor’s Note: CMT will simulcast Bellator MMA Live on Saturday (Jan. 20) at 9 p.m. ET. A performance of the National Anthem by Trace Adkins will kick off the event. While chatting with MMA fighter Michael Chandler, it’s easy to see the parallels between pursuing professional careers in mixed martial arts and country music. Both paths can be bloody and painful. Both experiences have sacrifices, losses and victories. And both are callings.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
