“The opportunity to expand our marketing relationships with Third Day fans are enhanced with this tour,” said Tim Hudgens, Regional Marketing Manager Chevrolet-Southeast. “Music has been and continues to be an integral part of Chevy’s marketing approach. It allows us to connect with a variety of customers and fans alike at a deeper level than we could with more traditional marketing tactics. For example, we are taking the opportunity to highlight the launch of our all-new SS line in conjunction with Third Day’s album release. Both of which are sure to get lots of attention.”
David Huffman, COO, Creative Trust, Inc. adds, “We love what Chevrolet is providing for Third Day fans. This experience will be one that our fans will never forget, and it’s another example of how this high-impact partnership between Third Day, Chevrolet and Creative Trust continues to intensify. It’s also a great way to celebrate our third year of relationship.”
