The Country Throwdown Tour and The Boot Campaign have announced the Country Throwdown Tour Contest sponsored by Southwest Airlines. Anyone in the United States can nominate an eligible military family to win a pack of four VIP tickets to one of five stops on the summer 2012 Country Throwdown Tour.
The public can nominate a military family whose family member is active duty military or received an honorable discharge within the last two years, resides in the continental United States, and served or is serving any branch of service, including the Guard and Reserve. Nominations will be received from May 24 through June 25. Check contest rules for specific entry periods.
Concert locations include Glen Allen, VA (June 13), Pittsburgh (June 16), Milwaukee, WI (June 28), Chicago (June 30), and Nashville (July 8). Winners selected for each city will be flown courtesy of Southwest Airlines, receive hotel accommodations, four tickets to the concert, a chance to stand side stage, a meet and greet with Gary Allan, and a pair of the Boot Campaign’s “Give Back Boots.”
