One of my favorite songs on the radio right now is “Dancing in Circles,” by Love & Theft. So I sat up and took notice when I received this press release yesterday. It says that Kraft Singles is searching for the “Single Best Town” in America! It also says that Kraft Singles and Disney ABC will award America’s “Single Best Town” with an ultimate block party, featuring live performance form country music stars Love and Theft.
Now, I can only assume I have your interest. So, I’m going to get this press release up for you. It tells you what the contest is all about. How you can enter, and what happens if you are selected one of the Top 10 Single Best Towns.
Nashville, TN – America is home to baseball, state fairs, country music, cheeseburgers and of course, American cheese. Now America’s favorite brand of American cheese – KRAFT Singles – has partnered with Disney ABC to discover America’s “Single Best Town,” inviting people across the country to share the single best thing about their town. From a unique monument to a charming local festival, KRAFT Singles is searching for the one-of-a-kind features that make America’s towns special and uniquely American!
This spring, America’s winning “Single Best Town” will enjoy an unforgettable block party featuring country music trio Love And Theft, who are gearing up to tour with country music superstars Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum. The winning town will rock out to music from the band’s recently released debut album, World Wide Open, including hits “Runaway” and “Dancing In Circles.” The block party will also feature appearances by ABC Soap Stars.
“When we’re out on tour we get to see the best of America in every town we visit, so we’re really looking forward to jamming with the “Single Best Town” in America,” says Stephen Barker Liles of Love And Theft. “Who knows, we might even write a song about it!”
