Enter to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia
PUEBLO, Colo. (September 15, 2011) – The Professional Bull Riders are teaming up with one of the hottest Australian country music groups around, The McClymonts, for a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip for two to Australia to see the trio live Down Under! The McClymonts will also be giving multiple exclusive performances during the 2011 PBR World Finals in Las Vegas, Oct. 26-30.
The contest is simple: go to www.pbr.com/mcclymonts, watch the music video for their current single, “Wrapped Up Good,” and tell us the color of the winning race car in the video. The Grand Prize winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entrants who correctly identify the car’s color, and will receive a nine day/eight night trip to Australia in January 2012.
The sisters are from New South Wales, which is also the home of PBR riders Brendon Clark and Ben Jones, as well as brothers Jared and Pete Farley.
For the past four years, The McClymonts were named Best Group by The Australian Country Music Awards, and the trio’s most recent album, Wrapped Up Good, was #5 on the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) End of the Year Charts. Their Wrapped Up Good Tour sold out all over Australia in 2010, and the group also shared some dates with U.S. country music stars Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum, and even rocker Ozzy Osbourne.
