Win a pair of weekend passes to Country Thunder

We’ve noted before that country music is coming home, with the return of the Country Music Week — including the CCMA awards — in September.

Before that, though, the city gets another tasty sampling of the C&W with the annual Country Thunder Alberta, which takes over Prairie Winds Park this year from Aug. 16-18 and boasts an impressive lineup including headliners Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and Pistol Annies, Lindsay Ell, Tanya Tucker, Jake Owen, Terri Clark and so many others.

It will, as always, be a spectacular three days for local lovers of all that is country.

Is that you?

Well, guess what: We want you to go. Not just for one day, but for the entire Country Thunder. The folks behind the fest have been amazing enough to give us a pair of passes for the whole shebang and we want to give you a weekend you won’t forget. To enter, head to our Facebook page, perhaps think about giving us a like, find this post, and comment underneath telling us who you’re most excited to see while also tagging a friend that you want to take.

We’ll pick a winner at random (OK, politeness and sucking up also help) and let them know by the end of the day Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Good luck!
