America’s favorite cheese, Kraft Singles, is partnering with Disney ABC and Lyric Street artists Love And Theft to discover America’s “Single Best Town,” inviting people across the country to share the single best thing about their hometown. Kraft Singles is searching for the “one-of-a-kind features that make America’s towns special and uniquely American.” This spring, the winning town will enjoy a block party featuring Love And Theft, who will perform live and share the stage with ABC Soap Stars. From January 25 through February 28, fans can enter the “Single Best Town” contest at www.familyfun.com/best-town-contest by submitting a photo and short description of what they consider the single best thing about their town. Ten finalists will be selected and America’s vote will determine the “Single Best Town” in America.
“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 Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles.
