Country star Trace Adkins teams up with Waggin’ Train brand for dog jingle contest

Country music star Trace Adkins and his dogs Bella and Daisy.

Waggin’ Train dog treats has teamed up with country music star Trace Adkins for a fun contest designed to celebrate the special relationships people have with their dogs – and you and you pup are the stars!

The Waggin’ Train Tail Waggin’ Jingle Contest is searching the country for dog owners who have such a “tail waggin” good time with their best buddies that it inspires them to sing a jingle about it. One lucky Grand Prize winner will win the chance-of-a-lifetime to perform his or her jingle in a recording session produced by country music star Trace Adkins.

From June 9 – August 3, dog owners can visit and upload a 60 second video that shows them performing their original jingle about the good times they share with their dog. The entrants must also upload the lyrics to their jingle. The jingle must include original music, composition and lyrics and should be performed with acoustic instruments (e.g, guitar, piano, violin, harmonica, etc.) or a cappella with no instruments. The owner’s dog should also be featured in the video.

After August 3, the entries will be judged in three rounds. Round 1 will cut the field down to the top 20 entries selected by an outside judging panel. Round 2 will have consumers selected 5 finalists from those 20 semi-finalists.

And in Round 3, the five finalists will be flown to Nashville during CMA Awards week in November 2011 where they will perform their jingle on stage at a private event in front of country music star Trace Adkins, who will judge each finalist and select one Grand Prize Winner. The Grand Prize Winner will win the chance of a lifetime to perform his/her jingle in a recording session produced by the country music star. The winner will also get an autographed CD of his/her jingle which could be featured on the Waggin’ Train Web site and page on Facebook.

So dust off those guitars, get Rover ready for the camera, and get singing! You can learn more about the contest on the contest website,
