Morgan RV Resorts announced today (May 25) that it will be hosting the 2010 Nashville To You Campground Tour at many of its 45 resorts throughout this summer and fall beginning with multiple performances during Memorial Day weekend at Morgan’s Indiana Beach RV Resort and amusement park in Monticello, Ind.
Many of the host resorts on the tour will mix the live country music performances with their new NASCAR-themed activities, which include live broadcasts of NASCAR races that feature exclusive broadcast content available only at their NASCAR RV Resorts.
The N2U Campground Tour is produced by Nashville, Tenn-based Nashville To You and features several of Music Row’s hottest emerging artists, including Columbia Records’ Jordyn Shellhart, N2U Artist Emma Jacob, Kate and Kacey and JB Rocket of Country Music Television’s “Can You Duet” fame and Dan Evans from Season 5 of the reality TV hit series “The Biggest Loser.” Other artists will join the tour throughout the summer.
“Providing live country music performances for many of our 4 million guests this summer will add to the quality of the camping experience they have come to expect at our resorts,” said Robert J. Moser, owner and CEO of Morgan RV Resorts. “Our guests have always enjoyed the multiple amenities that our resorts provide like golf, fishing and swimming and now they’ll cap off their days with the great live family entertainment that this tour will provide.”
“We are grateful to Morgan RV Resorts for their support in opening their campgrounds to us and allowing our emerging artists access to hundreds of thousands of their campers,” said Rick Barker, president of Nashville to You. “Performing live is critical to the development of a new artist, not just for the development of their performance skills, but for the development of their fan base as well. We are doing multiple performances over a weekend and that means increasing the playing time and the opportunities to build a connection between the artists and the fans.”
The concept and execution of the Tour is a result of the collaboration between Barker and Kurt Hunt, a former marketing director for RV industry leader Camping World. Hunt is a recent addition to the Nashville To You team and will direct the marketing and sponsorship programs for the Campground Tour and other Nashville To You artists and properties.
In addition, the 2010 N2U Campground Tour will make stops at racetracks hosting NASCAR events throughout the racing season including weekend dates at Road America, Chicagoland, Dover and Miami Homestead race tracks.
A complete schedule for the 2010 Country Campground Tour will be released soon.
