Wednesday, June 5 marked the sixth consecutive year Nationwide Insurance and CMT have joined forces to bring country fans across the country the CMT Music Awards.
We hope you tuned in to watch country music stars Ashley Monroe, Cassadee Pope, Dustin Lynch and others perform on the Nationwide Insurance Stage in front of thousands of fans.
Before the show started, country music fans gathered outside the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, for an up-close look at the NASCAR Nationwide Series mobile display, and took part in a special “Nationwide is On Your Side” jingle contest.
The contest was judged by 23-year-old NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Austin Dillon, 2011’s most popular NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Elliot Sadler and up-and-coming country singer Tim Dugger. Grand prize for the contest were two free tickets to the sold-out awards show.
A highlight of the CMT Music Awards broadcast was the Nationwide® Insurance On Your Side® Award for best new live act. Thousands of country music fans across the country voted online, and ultimately chose the young performer, Hunter Hayes, as 2013’s best new live country act.
We hope you had as much fun as we did, In the meantime, keep an eye out for contests and promotions, and keep practicing that jingle: “Nationwide is On Your Side.”
