Guitar Center Wants Keith Urban On Your Next Record
October 4, 2010 at 12:18 PM (PT)
CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN is teaming up with GUITAR CENTER, the world's largest musical instrument retailer, for a contest for unsigned artists called “GUITAR CENTER'S Your Next Record with KEITH URBAN.” The winning artist in this competition will earn the opportunity to record a 3-song EP with a top producer and have KEITH appear on the winning artists' single.
The prize package also includes a $10,000 GUITAR CENTER shopping spree, $10,000 in new gear and endorsement deals from GIBSON, D’ADDARIO, PLANET WAVES and EVANS, an opening slot on a KEITH URBAN concert and a feature of the band’s single on iTUNES.
URBAN said: "I'm always ready to do whatever it takes to give aspiring musicians the chance to do what they love. I think we've all heard someone whose musical talents blow us away and sometimes all that stands between their garage and an arena is a chance. Opportunity. That's what 'GUITAR CENTER'S Your Next Record' is all about."
Starting today through NOVEMBER 30th, unsigned artists across the U.S. are invited to submit their music at YourNextRecord.com for a chance to win the aforementioned prize package.
