We could not be more excited to have Texas Pete sponsor the Corey Smith tour.
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Texas Pete Hot Sauce is hitting the road with rising country music artist Corey Smith during the singer’s “Movin’ On Up” nationwide tour. Smith’s sponsorship by the South’s No. 1 hot sauce was officially announced last week by Glenn Garner, vice president of marketing for Texas Pete.
The national hot sauce brand will have a constant presence during the tour, providing fans with on-site tastings at various venues and distributing Texas Pete promotional items and sample bottles at others. In addition, Texas Pete will celebrate its connection to Smith via graphic representation on the wrapped trailer, which accompanies the tour.
“We could not be more excited to have Texas Pete sponsor the Corey Smith tour,” said Garner. “Corey’s fan base and Texas Pete enthusiasts are one and the same. They live life to the fullest and are always up for stimulating their senses, whether through Corey’s critically acclaimed music or through the unmistakable flavor Texas Pete adds to food.”
With an ever-expanding fan-base and hundreds of sold-out performances to date, Smith is making his mark on the country music scene. He has logged more than 1,000 plus shows, sold more than 1 million tickets and brought Zac Brown Band, Brantley Gilbert and Florida Georgia Line along for the ride as openers. Amassing acclaim as an independent artist, Smith has sold more than 1.8 million digital singles and 250,000 albums. He has been recognized as one of country music's hottest new artists by Country Weekly and Music Row Magazine and featured on the cover of Pollstar as a Hotstar Top Artist. His brand new single “Ain’t Going Out Tonight” is currently in rotation on SiriusXM’s The Highway and is the lead single from his forthcoming full-length album produced by Keith Stegall.
