The Academy of Country Music and ‘ZinePak will release the 47th Annual ACM Awards Spotlight ‘ZinePak, a limited-edition package spotlighting 2012’s biggest nominees and most promising new stars. The set includes a 120-page magazine, a 20-song CD, a ballot with this year’s ACM Awards nominees and a collectible ACM magnet. The ‘ZinePak is available at Walmart and Walmart.com on March 20 and can be pre-ordered on Walmart’s website.
“The Academy is delighted to be the exclusive country music partner with ‘ZinePak for the second consecutive year,” Bob Romeo, Chief Executive Officer of the Academy of Country Music, said. “Country music fans told us last year how much they liked the product, and we’re happy to be able to offer them the incredible value of a CD, features on superstar and upcoming artists, games, and more – plus a ballot for fans to use while they watch the show on April 1.”
“We were thrilled to partner with the Academy for the second straight year to give fans an up-close look at the Awards,” ‘ZinePak co-founder Brittany Hodak said. “We are incredibly grateful for the support of Dr Pepper TEN, and all of the artists, labels, mangers, and publicists who helped with this project. We hope fans will enjoy this year’s package even more than the first.”
This year’s CD includes hits from all five ACM Entertainer of the Year nominees, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Taylor Swift.
