Live at 35 is back: Taylor Guitars and Southwest Airlines Announces The Travelin' Taylor Tour
DALLAS—May 13, 2013—Southwest Airlines' Live at 35™ concert series has returned with the Travelin' Taylor Tour, a series of six inflight shows featuring current and rising stars spanning multiple musical genres who play Taylor guitars. During this unique inflight experience, each featured musician will play a custom, Southwest-themed, GS Mini guitar, a travel-sized guitar known for its impressive big sound and comfortable, play-anywhere size. Each of the six custom guitars will be given away in a sweepstakes that begins today, and eligible participants can enter through June 14, only on southwest.com/taylortour.
Each music act will board a Southwest flight across the United States on separate days, performing at least two songs Live at 35™ (35,000 feet, that is), beginning with Parmalee on May 13. The tour will conclude with Easton Corbin on May 30. The artwork for Southwest's custom guitar was designed by a Southwest Airlines employee, and the guitar itself was constructed by Taylor Guitars.
