Chris Young Teams Up with Folgers on the “Folgers Jingle Contest”

CHRIS YOUNG

For generations, the Folgers® Jingle has been a welcome tune in the homes of Americans. This year, Grammy-nominated country music singer-songwriter Chris Young has partnered with Folgers Coffee to inspire musicians to follow their dreams by putting their own spin on the iconic jingle and entering their version into the Folgers Jingle Contest.

From January 30, 2017 through February 20, 2017, individuals can submit a video at Folgers.com of their unique musical performance of the jingle for an opportunity to win a mentoring session with Chris Young. The video must include the complete melody and lyrics of “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup®.” Once complete, the video must be posted to Jingle.FolgersCoffee.com.

From March 20, 2017 through April 16, 2017, fans around the world will have the opportunity to vote daily for their favorite finalist’s jingle. In May, one Jingle finalist will be selected as the grand-prize winner of $25,000.

“The Folgers Jingle is an iconic tune that has lived in my memory since childhood,” said Chris Young, singer-songwriter. “I’m excited to be a part of this year’s Folgers Jingle Contest which gives up-and-coming musicians an opportunity to showcase their musical talent and look forward to mentoring the finalists on their Folgers Jingle submissions.”
