Thanks to our friend David Burger of the SL Trib for this!
HGTV will for the first time give one lucky artist or band the opportunity to be the new sound of HGTV.As if that is supposed to be an honor. I kid.
Until September 5, 2012 at 3 p.m. Mountain time, musicians can submit their original songs at hgtv.pastemagazine.com, for the chance to have their music shared with an audience of millions, including the people in my living room. My wife loves that channel. That and Suze Orman. Those kill me, by the way. And make me go to sleep.
The winning song, to be chosen by Paste’s editors and HGTV producers, will become HGTV’s new sound for its upcoming "House Hunters International" marketing and promotional campaign.
The “Be The New Sound of HGTV” grand prize package includes:
•Artist/band credit in HGTV’s key press and promotional announcements for the campaign.
•A booking to play a Paste event during the 2013 SXSW Music Conference in Austin, Texas.
•A session booking to play one of Daytrotter’s recording studio outposts.
•A “Live from Paste” booking at Paste’s Decatur, Ga., headquarters or another location.
Nine additional finalists may also have their music featured on HGTV. The winner will be selected in September
