Enter to win a No Room for Rockstars prize pack courtesy of Vans Warped Tour!

Contest is now closed!


For 17 years, the Vans Warped Tour has been a punk rock juggernaut, a misfit circus crisscrossing North America every summer as a wandering minstrel show for youth culture.  Embracing a powerful, unifying ethic created by its founder Kevin Lyman, the Vans Warped Tour has grown and prospered as the music industry itself imploded and continues to sift through the rubble in search of a new way forward. Along the way, Warped has provided a launching pad for a dizzying array of talent, from Green Day and Blink 182 to Ice-T, Eminem and No Doubt, along with perennial punk legends such as Pennywise, All, Bouncing Souls and Bad Religion.

This Sunday, February 11, Glen Campbell will have Blake Shelton and the Band Perry accompanying him as he performs at the Grammy Awards where he will be presented with the Recording Academy® Lifetime Achievement Award.

This Sunday, February 11, Glen Campbell will have Blake Shelton and the Band Perry accompanying him as he performs at the Grammy Awards where he will be presented with the Recording Academy® Lifetime Achievement Award. This week saw the reissue of Glen Campbell’s critically acclaimed 2008 album, Meet Glen Campbell—expanded with exclusive bonus tracks for a special CD and digital edition—in advance of this great honor. Upon its original release in August 2008, Meet Glen Campbell was met with worldwide critical praise, and Campbell promoted the album with interviews and performances for a broad spectrum of media, including an “AOL Sessions” concert. Meet Glen Campbell’s expanded edition adds three performances from that concert (Campbell’s classic hits “Wichita Lineman” and “Rhinestone Cowboy”, and U2’s “All I Want Is You”), as well as 2008 remixes of “Gentle on My Mind” and “Galveston”. And we’ve got two copies of this album to give away to two of our lucky readers!


From the press release:
In a legendary music career that spans more than five decades, Glen Campbell has achieved chart-topping, platinum-selling pop and country success singing everyday tales of life, love, work, and heartache. Campbell has been honored with five GRAMMY Awards and trophies for Male Vocalist of the Year from both the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy Of Country Music (ACM). In addition to being inducted into the CMA’s Hall of Fame, he has been awarded its top Entertainer Of The Year honors, and the ACM has honored him with its prestigious Pioneer Award.
