CMA Fest Contests – with Sara Evans & Corey Smith

While BandPage Experiences is clearly a great platform for you to engage with fans, artists have been using it to host a number of outstanding contests around the Country Music Awards Music Festival.

Sara Evans

Country music star Sara Evans seamlessly used Experiences to manage the logistics of her singing contest.  The lucky winner was rewarded with a flight to Nashville to perform on stage with Sara at the CMA Music Festival. Sara’s team used BandPage Experiences to gather video submissions from contestants around the nation. The top five finalists were voted on by Sara’s fan club.

Hundreds of thousands of people viewed the campaign, which generated thousands of social actions including likes, shares and comments.

Winner Lauren Elise from Florida is pictured below from her on-stage performance last week with Sara at her CMA Fan Club Party. This Experience was also filmed and will be soon featured on AXS TV on the ‘Your Country’ show, reaching millions of homes across the US.


Corey Smith

Fellow CMA performer Corey Smith also used BandPage Experiences to collect submissions for an hour-long song-writing clinic. Corey received close to 100 submissions in less than two weeks. The three lucky winners, Chae Godwin, Tyler Giles, and Riley Green, were chosen by Corey to work with him on perfecting their song-writing skills.


We’re stoked to see other creative ways artists can use BandPage Experiences. If you have specific ideas you’d like to share with us, please get in touch.
