From the Galleywinter website:
FANS: Want to put your favorite artists on a cool bill and win a prize?
BANDS: Feel left out of the coolest stages in the scene?
Here’s your chance and it’s easy to play/win…all in the name of charity!
We at Galleywinter are proud to once again be a part of the Bowen Classic! Wade Bowen’s charity concert/golf tournament has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for deserving organizations. This year, the event has expanded even further!
The concert will be held in downtown Waco at Indian Springs Park on Sunday May 6 right on the banks of the Brazos River. This location is a prime spot for an event such as this and should work extremely well. The golf tournament will follow on Monday May 7 at Cottonwood Creek with an 11AM shotgun start.
One of our mottos around here has always been FOR THE FANS, BY THE FANS. This contest is the ultimate exemplification of that. Fans get to support their favorite artists and then watch them perform. Artists get to interact with their fans and get a shot at playing one of the most revered stages in the scene.
Last year the lucky winners were Rich O’Toole, Jonathan Garcia and Chance Anderson. Who will win this year?
HOW IT WORKS:
Simply suggest the 3 artists** that you’d like to see perform in an acoustic songswap set at the show. You can do this three ways:
1. By placing their names in the comments section of this article.
2. Sending your 3 choices via reply to the Galleywinter Twitter.
3. Posting your choices on the Facebook event wall!
Nominations will be accepted until the deadline, and all submissions must be received by Friday April 13 at 5PM. The three artists with the most submissions will be announced on Monday April 16 and perform at the event on Sunday May 6. If they are already on the bill, unable to play due to a prior commitment, or for other reasons, then the next highest vote getter will get the slot and so on.
Everyone who submits their picks will be entered into a drawing for a special Bowen Classic prize pack. One lucky winner will score tickets to the event and a VIP Meet and Greet…and get to see 3 of your favorite singers on one of the biggest stages in Texas/Red Dirt Music!
**Artists already confirmed to appear are listed below…please only nominate names you don’t see below:
Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Josh Abbott, Casey James, Cody Canada and The Departed, Charlie Robinson, Turnpike Troubadours, Micky and The Motorcars, Drew Kennedy, Josh Grider, Brian Keane, Charlie Worsham, Brison Bursey, Kimberly Kelly, William Clark Green, Kylie Rae Harris, Zane Williams and several more of Wade’s friends that will be announced very soon!
