The weekend of April 19 is almost here, and if you are a country music fan living anywhere near the Dallas area, you know what BIG event is happening at the AT&T stadium that day: The Academy of Country Music Awards!
The Academy of Country Music and ZinePak are proud to announce their fifth collaboration to bring country music fans the Official 2015 ACM Awards ZinePak, a limited-edition package spotlighting country’s biggest stars and brightest new talent.
This year’s 50th Anniversary collection includes two compilation CDs, a 96-page magazine, an ACM Awards nominee ballot, and a window decal. The ZinePak will be available at Walmart stores nationwide beginning on March 24, leading up to that LIVE broadcast from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network. The collection is currently available for pre-order here.
What’s on those CDs? Disc One of the collection includes hits from ACM Entertainer of the Year nominees Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, and Florida Georgia Line. It also features tracks from ACM Awards nominees Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton, among others. (…say no more. Those are my favorites and I am sold!) But of course there’s more!
Disc Two showcases 15 of country music’s brightest new talent. (See the full track listing here)
In addition to exclusive interviews with more than 25 artists, the magazine gives fans an inside look at the Academy, including the 50-year history behind the organization and the Awards. Fans will also have access to more than 15 exclusive videos powered by the free ZinePak All Access app, available for download in the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
The package, which is limited to 50,000 copies, is currently available for presale at Walmart.com. It will be available in the music department in Walmart stores nationwide beginning March 24. The first 1,500 fans to pre-order online will receive an additional window decal. Coors Light, a 20-year sponsor of the Academy of Country Music Awards, is sponsoring the ZinePak for a third year in a row, allowing the package to retail for the super-low price of $10.
