Contest: Win Tickets to Rufus Wainwright and Ingrid Michaelson at the Ryman!

At Nashville for Free we get excited about all the contests we get to have, especially ones from our good friends at AEG Live/The Messina Group. But, I have to say, I’m freaking pumped for this one.

Two incredible performers, Rufus Wainwright and Ingrid Michaelson, are coming to The Ryman on Friday, October 19th, and we get to give away a pair of tickets for it!

Ya pumped? You should be, because our contests are EASY. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this blog post with your favorite song by Rufus Wainwright or Ingrid Michaelson. That’ll get you exactly ONE entry into the hat.

Want a bigger chance to win? We can do that. Just post a picture on our Facebook wall of you holding a sucker or a dozen, in honor of the catchy-as-hell Rufus song “Out of the Game” or a pic of you with cigarettes and chocolate milk, ya know, because of his song “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk.” You can even do both for extra points! 5 entries for one pic, 7 for both.

I’m picking a winner (randomly) Thursday night, so get yourself entered before then! And make sure you leave me a VALID email address. Once I contact you I’ll only give you a day to respond.

    Ingrid Michaelson – The way I am. Yes, it’s overplayed, but I love it.

    How about both?!?! My favorite Rufus song is Vibrate. My favorite Ingrid song is Turn to Stone. I’m probably going to use the latter at my wedding. I’d give just about anything to win tickets! I’ll even consider the photo op….thanks!

    The Chain by Ingrid Michaelson. So much personal meaning in that song.

    Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk. That song, and all of Poses actually, inspired me to learn to play the piano.

    Choosing a favorite Ingrid song is like choosing a favorite child…but for the sake of winning tickets to see her I’ll pick Giving Up – the lyrics would make perfect wedding vows. She’s a lyrical genius! KrisAnn_Christian@baylor.edu
