– Seven grand prize winners to receive a year’s worth of mortgage payments, VIP Wheels Up 2015 Tour tickets and paid travel expenses –
DETROIT – April 2, 2014 – Seven-time Grammy Award-winning group Lady Antebellum has teamed up with national mortgage lender Quicken Loans to give seven lucky fans the backstage experience of a lifetime and a year of relief from their mortgage with the launch of the ‘7FOR7 Sweepstakes.’ The sweepstakes celebrates the band’s upcoming worldwide Wheels Up 2015 Tour presented by Quicken Loans, beginning May 1 and continuing across North America through the fall.
An extension of Lady Antebellum’s charity-focused 7FOR7 campaign, the ‘7FOR7 Sweepstakes’ will award seven grand prize winners a year’s worth of mortgage payments, courtesy of Quicken Loans, as well as a VIP concert experience for them and a guest, including meet-and-greet passes and complimentary travel.
To enter, fans must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen and visit www.ladyantebellum.com/7FOR7 to fill out the entry form, which asks entrants what it would mean to them to meet Lady Antebellum and to take a yearlong vacation from their mortgage payments. Winning entries will be selected based on creativity, clarity and thoughtfulness. The sweepstakes ends August 20, 2015.
“7FOR7 has been one of our favorite ways to connect with fans off-stage,” said Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “Being able to keep that thread going with Quicken Loans is something we’re really excited to help make happen. Helping a family pay their mortgage for a year is a special gift, and I hope we help change some of our fans’ lives in a real tangible way – it’s going to be a great summer!”
In addition to the seven grand prize winners, two first prize winners will receive VIP tickets and meet–and-greet passes for them and a guest to see Lady Antebellum during the tour and an autographed 747 album. Twenty second prize winners will receive an autographed copy of the album.
“Lady Antebellum is the hottest ticket in town and this sweepstakes offers a great opportunity to experience their amazing concert from the best seats in the house,” said Jay Farner, President and Chief Marketing Officer at Quicken Loans. “Put a year’s worth of mortgage payments on top of that and you have an unbeatable combination for music fans everywhere.”
