Taylor Swift and Chris Young are the latest artists wanting to give their fans a gift of country music. The pair have teamed up with the Country Music Association for the “Give The Gift Of Music Campaign” which features CMA-nominated artists discussing how country music has shaped their lives. Both Taylor and Chris have launched videos as part of the “Countdown To CMA” special on the CMA website. Other artists with videos include Kelly Clarkson, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Darius Rucker, and even Blake Shelton.
As part of the campaign, the Country Music Association has also started a contest to send country music fans to the 2011 CMA Awards this November. To enter, fans need to share how a songwriter has inspired your life. The story must include one of the 2011 nominees for the CMA Awards, and the top prize is a trip for two to the award show November 9th with two runner-up prizes of country music packages. Fans can enter HERE. Good luck!
