Chris Young Announces Folgers Partnership With $25,000 Contest
Chris Young has been a busy guy over the last several months, with a number of awards nominations, a chart-topping album and a massive headlining tour. The momentum is continuing in 2017 as Young has teamed up with Folgers Coffee for an exciting new Jingle Contest.
From now until February 20, 2017, individuals can submit a video of their original jingle idea to folgers.com for an opportunity to win a mentoring session with Young himself. A Grand prize winner will also be awarded with $25,000.
“The Folgers Jingle is an iconic tune that has lived in my memory since childhood,” said the Tennessee native in a press release. “I’m excited to be a part of this year’s Folgers Jingle Contest which gives up-and-coming musicians an opportunity to showcase their musical talent and look forward to mentoring the finalists on their Folgers Jingle submissions.”
A chance to team up with the coffee giant is also a dream come true for the self-proclaimed “big coffee drinker.”
“I’ve been kind of saying it half as a joke but I don’t think there’s any musician out there that doesn’t drink coffee,” Young explained to Sounds Like Nashville. “It’s such a big part of my life. I mean, I think I probably go through an entire pot of coffee when I’m writing a song and Folgers is just an iconic brand.”
And how does he take his coffee when he’s busy writing another hit song?
“It really depends. I’m a little big cream and sugar guy usually, but sometimes I’ll drink just straight black.”
