Although the 4th ACM Party For A Cause Festival has come to an end, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is still bringing exclusive coverage from backstage to the fans using its Content Creator Studio.
The Content Creator Studio is part of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s Spotlight Music program and has hosted several of today’s most popular social media stars, including Blair Fowler, Amymarie Gaertner, Brodie Smith, 80Fitz, Doug The Pug and Collins Key, as they conduct exclusive one-on-one interview with some of country music’s top artists, including Kellie Pickler, The Band Perry, Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town, Cole Swindell, Chris Young, Cam, Kelsea Ballerini, Frankie Ballard, Dan + Shay and many more.
Music fans everywhere can find these exclusive interviews, photos and videos on Cracker Barrel’s website at crackerbarrel.com/ACMparty and many of the brand’s other channels, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using hashtag #CBstudio.
“Music has been part of Cracker Barrel’s story since its founding in 1969 and remains a cornerstone of the brand today,” said Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Senior Marketing Manager Julie Ulmer. “Through partnerships with artists and events such as this, Cracker Barrel is able to utilize technology to connect with consumers to provide exclusive music and entertaining experiences. Our Content Creator Studio at the ACM Party For A Cause Festival allows us to give guests and music lovers nationwide unique content from today’s top social media stars and country artists.”
The Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Spotlight Music program has also featured recent partnerships with the brand’s first pop artists – a cappella group Pentatonix and “Fight Song” singer Rachel Platten – as well as soul R&B singer-songwriter Anthony Hamilton, and country mainstays Jason Isbell, Zac Brown, Miranda Lambert, Morgane Stapleton with Chris Stapleton, and Jamey Johnson on the just released “Southern Family” album.
Of course, Cracker Barrel Country Store’s website isn’t the only place where fans can find interviews with the artists. Allure magazine also conducted interviews about various topics including music, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle, and gave artists the chance to curate beauty boxes with their favorite products, which will be contested on Allure.com. WhoSay was also on hand speaking with artists about their current projects.
Additionally, music making app Smule powered the lounge of the Studio where artists interacted with their social media followers through recorded video, and fashion illustrator Alex Kim sketched artists as they arrived to the studio and final drawings are featured on her Instagram AKimDesigns.
