TouchTunes Network Launches Exclusive Promotion With Award-Winning Singer Miranda Lambert
TouchTunes Corporation, the largest out-of-home interactive entertainment network, has announced an exclusive promotion with award-winning Columbia Nashville recording artist Miranda Lambert. Beginning today, TouchTunes will feature the "Miranda Lambert Autographed Guitar Giveaway" on 10,000 jukeboxes nationwide. Users will be able to enter for a chance to win an Epiphone guitar autographed by Miranda herself by entering their email addresses on the TouchTunes screen at any participating location. Each location will also feature Miranda's chart-topping album "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and will promote her current Top 10 hit single, "Gunpowder & Lead."
Miranda first found success as a finalist on the 2003 season of "Nashville Star," the reality show that searches for the next big country music star. She quickly garnered critical praise for her debut album "Kerosene," which became a million-seller and earned her a nomination for the Country Music Association's Horizon Award and propelled her to a win as the Academy of Country Music's Top New Female Vocalist. "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," released last year, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and was recently named ACM Album of the Year.
"Miranda's 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' was one of the most critically acclaimed albums in any genre of music last year," said Heather McBee, vice president, digital business, Sony BMG Nashville, "and her popularity on the TouchTunes network is a testament both to the music and to TouchTunes as an incredible platform to reach her fans."
"Miranda Lambert's music has consistently been a top choice for country music fans across the TouchTunes network," said Ron Greenberg, TouchTunes CMO and senior vice president of digital media. "We're able to target Miranda's fans at locations where she gets the most plays and to give customers the chance to win a great piece of memorabilia."
