CITADEL Country WKHX (KICKS 101.5)/ATLANTA recently presented the “KELLIE PICKLER HIGH SCHOOL HOOK UP,” giving high schools in the area the chance to win a full blown concert with the BNA RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist on MAY 5th.
Over two million text messages were received from 150 area schools from APRIL 14th-23rd. The winning high school, ETOWAH in nearby WOODSTOCK, GA, was the winning school with an amazing 544,779 texts from just that one school. And you thought those kids just used their cool little cell phones for emergencies right parents.
Anyway, on MONDAY, APRIL 28th, KICKS saluted ETOWAH High on the CADILLAC and DALLAS morning show when they announced them as the grand prize winner, complete with the cheerleaders from the school.
