It's not every day fans get to become part of one of the hottest tickets in country music. This summer, one person will have the opportunity to do just that as CMT and Taylor Guitars have launched a contest to design the official guitar for the Farmers Insurance Presents "The American Band Tour." In addition to the guitar being played by band members' onstage in cities across America, the winner will get a VIP experience to see the band live and receive his/her own autographed, custom-designed Taylor Guitar GS8 model. Fans will have additional opportunities to win Rascal Flatts' autographed GS Mini guitars at select concert dates, on CMT RADIO LIVE WITH CODY ALAN and on CMT.com, provided by Taylor Guitars. In total, CMT and Taylor Guitars will give away 15 guitars throughout the summer-long promotion.
Fans can submit guitar designs using approved images and logos now through Monday, April 30. More information is available at www.rascalflatts.cmt.com.
