Blake Shelton Wants Your Best Pick-Up Line
"Do you have a Band Aid? I just scraped my knee falling for you."
"I seem to have lost my phone number. Can I have yours?"
"Is there an airport nearby or is that just my heart taking off?"
If you can do better (or cheesier?) than that, Blake Shelton wants to hear it.
The singer probably had some of his own good pick-up lines back in the day ... before he met Miranda Lambert, of course. Now that the big guy is engaged, he's not exactly using them, but, nonetheless, he's still looking for some original pick-up lines for his innovative ''All About Tonight' Come-On Contest, sponsored by Warner Music Nashville and Marco Club Connection.
The contest is designed for the woman or man who just can't say "hello" in a hallway or a nightclub; they have to use some catchy little pick-up line as an attention-getter. In the online contest, fans call in to a special hotline to record their best pick-up lines: 615-942-0746. Each week, Blake will pick his favorite submissions, announcing them on his Tuesday Take Six webisodes. Winners will receive a Reprise Records prize pack containing autographed Blake Shelton swag. And everybody's a winner, as callers who record a message will receive a link to download Blake's new single, 'All About Tonight,' for free.
This unique contest, which has been held in more than 200 country dance venues across the country, exploded in popularity after Blake began posting about it on Twitter and Facebook. Now that the contest has expanded, online fans can participate through the singer's official website. Listen to this week's winning online submission here.
"The feedback that we're getting from our clubs is that they're having a really great time with this contest," says Bobbe Morhiser, Club Connection Manager of Venue Marketing. "People are getting a kick out of hearing their pick-up lines on Blake's website, which range from hilarious to corny to a little racy, and then there are some that are just plain confusing. They're all entertaining, though!"
'All About Tonight' is Blake's debut single from his forthcoming SIX PAK release, 'All About Tonight,' which is due for release on August 10.
